A Legacy for Family & Community
Through planned gifts such as bequests, life insurance policies, gift annuities and charitable trusts, congregants can help perpetuate all that Rodeph Sholom stands for. The Ner Tamid Society acknowledges and honors those who have made charitable provisions in their estates to benefit Rodeph Sholom.
By including Rodeph Sholom in your financial and estate plans, you may increase your current income and provide future support for areas of the congregation or school that are important to you. Often you can make a larger gift than you might have thought possible, while also benefiting yourself and your family. Planned gifts may be eligible for immediate tax deductions as well as reduce estate taxes to you and your children.

Bequests and wills have been the cornerstone of giving at Rodeph Sholom since the nineteenth century. They account for a valuable portion of the Rodeph Sholom endowment and can provide significant funding for Rodeph Sholom programs, facilities, and student aid.

- Real Estate or Other Valuable Property
It may be advantageous to you and your estate to consider bequeathing assets such as real estate to Rodeph Sholom. The Synagogue or the school may choose to use the space or might use the proceeds from the sale of the property to fund programs and projects.
