As you know, dues only cover a portion of our expenses.
To meet all of our costs, we rely on additional fundraising. Yet ensuring the viability of this wonderful Congregation is a shared responsibility for all, each according to his or her ability to support Congregation Temple Emanu-El. Thus, the High Holiday Appeal is our annual fund-raising appeal. Members may choose to give at any time during the year or during the High Holidays. All contributed funds benefit the Temple Operating Fund. All donors – at all levels – will be recognized as part of our High Holiday Appeal.
In remembrance, there is life…
Habonim Society — A Legacy of Builders
Thousands of people each year turn to gift planning to build the foundation for their philanthropy. Through generous support of the organizations they care about, these individuals provide untold benefits for future generations. Every gift makes a difference, and every person can find a planned gift that’s the right fit… these gifts matter.
The Habonim Society of Temple Emanu-El was founded to honor members who have established named Endowment funds or have provided for Congregation Temple Emanu-El in their estate plans. Membership is lifetime, complimentary and growing yearly.
Since planned gifts are the ultimate expression of confidence in Congregation Temple Emanu-El, it seemed fitting to name the Endowment recognition society, Habonim which means the Builders. Gifts given by members of the Habonim Society will last in perpetuity thus building a strong future for Congregation Temple Emanu-El. Such support is unique—while planned gifts often give something back to the giver, they also keep giving over decades and even generations, L’dor v’dor. It is only fitting that those who commit to such far-sighted support be recognized .
