Ways of Giving

Traditional Donation

Hineini Campaign
  • Your Hineini Campaign gift will be directly and immediately applied toward B’nai Israel’s operating costs.

Legacy Giving
  • Establishing an Endowment Fund at B’nai Israel serves to strengthen and sustain Judaism in our community for our children, grandchildren and future generations.

  • Plaques are tangible options for remembering your family’s celebrations and bereavements while also supporting B’nai Israel Congregation.
Create a Jewish Legacy
  • Include B’nai Israel in your estate planning as a beneficiary in your will, under your retirement plan or life insurance policy. It carries no financial obligation in the present, but it will have a huge and lasting impact on the future of B’nai Israel.
