Rochelle and I were raised with a strong connection to our synagogue. Rochelle is from a close-knit congregational community in Montgomery, and I was lucky enough to have all my life cycle events conducted by Rabbi Grafman.
In considering a legacy gift, Rochelle and I wanted to leave something meaningful to help ensure the future of our synagogue. It is very important to us that Temple Emanu-El remains strong and vibrant – not just for today, but for the future.
We realized that a perfect way to accomplish our goals was to create a fund to endow our dues. The establishment of this fund helps provide for the day-to-day operations and programming of the Temple every year in perpetuity – even after we have moved or passed away. In making this gift, we also hope to instill in our daughters the importance and responsibility of continued financial support for the Temple and this community.
