Giving

"We have never seen or heard," wrote Maimonides, "of a Jewish community without a kuppah (collection box)." Generosity is, and has always been, at the heart of Jewish life.

At B’nai Shalom, we give to sustain and support our congregation. We give to perpetuate the memory of loved ones … to celebrate simchas … to extend wishes for speedy healing … to help those in need … to bring Jewish culture and learning into our lives. We give to create a legacy and leave a "good name."

Each gift says, "I am part of this synagogue family." Each gift makes B’nai Shalom stronger, and is deeply appreciated.

Planned Giving

Here at B’nai Shalom we have formed a planned giving and endowment section to ensure that the community you know and love will benefit from your generosity. Please consider creating your own Jewish legacy to ensure that our B’nai Shalom community continues to thrive now and in the future by:

  • Putting B’nai Shalom in your will or trust as a beneficiary (specific or residual).
  • Making B’nai Shalom a beneficiary of your IRA or other tax-deferred account.
  • Naming B’nai Shalom as a beneficiary on a life insurance policy.

Below is a Letter of Intent form for you to fill out to let B’nai Shalom know that you want to leave a Legacy.

If you have any confidential questions, please feel to call Jeff Lipkin at 973-716-9031 or the synagogue office at 973-731-0160.

I want to carry on the tradition of Tzedakah for future generations by providing for the future needs of B’nai Shalom through my estate plans.

Therefore, I have made a decision to,

This Letter of Intent represents my commitment to the continunity of B’nai Shalom.

Sponsor Kiddush

We are proud of the tradition of providing a beautiful and delicious Kiddush each and every Shabbat and Yom Tov after services. It is a time for good food, good friends and lot of kibitzing. Many times it is also a time of celebration of a Simcha. For those occasions we provide many opportunities to enhance or sponsor a Kiddush.
