Life & Legacy Program



Beth-El Congregation’s Life & Legacy Program is a platform to steward donors and promote after-lifetime giving to benefit Beth-El Congregation or other Jewish entities in the local community. Beth-El Congregation has, to this point in time, recognized individuals and families who have included the congregation in their estate planning as Pillars of Beth-El. Through their generosity, they have planted seeds for those who will come after them, helping ensure that the congregation will remain a strong home of worship, education, and service. Life & Legacy continues and builds on the Pillars of Beth-El.  A legacy gift will not only continue your financial support of the congregation, it will signify to your loved ones and the entire community the importance of the passage of values from one generation to the next.
