THE TZEDAKAH SOCIETY
(WILLS, BEQUESTS, ESTATE PLANNING)
Touro Synagogue is a pillar of our Jewish community and a central gathering place to experience outstanding Jewish education, beautiful and spiritual worship, innovative programming, pastoral guidance and vital acts of community engagement. Touro Synagogue established the Tzedakah Society last year to recognize and honor members who, through their planned gifts, have decided to help sustain Touro beyond their lifetime. We’re delighted to report that, to date, 10 percent of our membership has joined the Tzedakah Society.
A planned gift could be a simple bequest in your will or the designation of Touro Synagogue as a beneficiary of a life insurance policy, retirement fund or trust. It will serve to ensure the future of Touro Synagogue for generations to come. You can make arrangements for a future gift to Touro Synagogue at any time, without an outlay of funds during your lifetime . To be included in the Tzedakah Society, all you need to do is communicate to us that you have, or intend to include the Synagogue in your estate plan. You are not required to disclose anything about the nature of your gift. All such gifts are welcome and appreciated regardless of size.
