L'dor Vador Legacy Society: Leave a lasting legacy.

Know from where you have come to know what your legacy will be. ~ Pirke Avrot, 3:1

As Temple B'nai Torah begins its fifth decade we, as a synagogue, have an opportunity to ensure our congregation's existence for many decades to come. The Temple, however, is the focal point of our religion and the strength of the Temple will determine Judaism's survival for our children and their children.

That is why Temple B'nai Torah has started the L'dor Vador Legacy Society, to create long term financial stability and growth for our Temple through the creation of endowments and deferred planned giving instruments by congregants through their estates. Some gifts will be small and some will be large but all will be welcomed and appreciated.

The L'dor Vador Legacy Society will consist of those members who have contributed to the Temple's Planned Giving Program.

Stephen Girard, an early American philanthropist, said, Even if I knew I would die tomorrow, I would plant an apple tree today.
