Create a Legacy


Create Your Jewish Legacy and Ensure the Future of Beth Sholom.

Create Your Jewish Legacy is a Jewish Foundation of Memphis initiative which aims to secure the future of the Memphis Jewish Community by obtaining legacy gifts to strengthen the agency's endowments. Legacy gifts include making a bequest in your will, leaving a percent of an IRA or a life insurance policy, making an endowment and other planned gifts to a charity.

Beth Sholom members have been very generous in their support of this initiative and are helping to ensure the future of the synagogue. Listed are the many members of the Beth Sholom Legacy Society for whom a special event is held each year. To learn how you can make a legacy gift, contact the synagogue office.

Planned gifts of all sizes are important and play a big role in ensuring that Beth Sholom will continue to thrive and bring meaning and connection to our community for the short- and long-term future. Thank you for considering this important and powerful step. We are honored and humbled to be a part of your legacy.

Potential Benefits of Making a Planned Gift

  • Deferred gifts do not affect current economic freedom and/or stability.
  • Deferred gifts can give you the opportunity to make an even bigger impact on our organization than gifts given now.
  • You have the freedom to change your mind if your situation changes.
  • It costs less to donate IRAs and retirement/pension plans to charity than to pass on to heirs.
  • Share your legacy, values, and communal connection with future generations
