Our synagogue has a variety of donation opportunities and tribute funds providing ways to support the congregation at all different levels. Of primary importance is the Annual Campaign, which is a critical component of B’nai Shalom’s operating budget. Other meaningful giving opportunities include, for example, dedicating a leaf on the Tree of Life to mark a special occasion or memorialize a loved one, or a Yahrzeit Memorial Plaque. There are opportunities throughout the year to sponsor a Kiddush or a favorite B’nai Shalom program, such as Sisterhood luncheons, special guest lecturer or the Purim Spiel. You may also choose to make a contribution to support our adult education program, learners@bnaishalom.net, the Rabbis' Discretionary Fund or one of many worthwhile designated funds.

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. As an alternative, you may download a copy of the form.

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