Create a Legacy


What does it mean to create a legacy? How does Rodef Sholom the synagogue, your Jewish community, and its future rank in your vision, values, and your charitable giving plans?  As members of the Planned Giving Committee of Rodef Sholom, we feel that these are personal questions each of us should address.

Legacy or planned giving is another way to give to the community beyond your lifetime, to strengthen future generations to come.

We all have experienced events in our lives in which Rodef Sholom and our synagogue community has played a critical role.  Our lives are enriched by memories of holidays, family traditions, religious rituals, and community membership.  We have celebrated and honored life at births, b'nai mitzvah, weddings, and funerals of loved ones and friends. We have prayed at High Holy Days led by our incomparable clergy.  Shabbat services, adult education, Torah study, social activities, and community service programs have filled our lives with joy, connection and meaning.

Thanks to annual participation and generosity of our members - of all ages and at all stages of life - Rodef Sholom remains a dynamic congregation, a warm caring center of our Jewish life today.

But what about tomorrow?  It is our mission to secure the future of our congregation for our children and generations to come.  For this reason, we have established our Planned Giving program – The Legacy Circle of Rodef Sholom. The Legacy Circle builds future financial stability and security for our congregation, allowing us to protect and continue our ability to transmit our values and our connection to Torah and our Jewish community.  Where does Rodef Sholom fit into "your world"?  Not only for spiritual purposes, but just as importantly, as an organization to sustain as part of your charitable planning.

We ask you to join over 150 fellow congregants in becoming a member of the Legacy Circle at Rodef Sholom
