Heritage Society
A gift to Temple Israel of Greater Miami is a legacy to your community. Your charitable gift can help to sustain, enrich and grow our community for generations to come. Your will is an important element in your estate plan that enables you to protect the people you love, create lasting support for Temple Israel and help ensure the future of this community. Your bequest may provide for a specific dollar gift, a percentage of your estate, or specific asset(s) to be given to Temple Israel in support of various programs and activities. A bequest may also be in the form of a gift of the remaining assets of one’s estate. Bequests, like other gifts, can be designated for many purposes or given without restriction.

There are many ways to make a gift of almost any size. Listed below are some of the many options available:

  • Appreciated securities
  • Closely-held stock and other business interests
  • Outright cash gifts
  • Real estate and investment properties
  • State of Israel bonds
  • Tangible personal property
  • Unrestricted Funds
  • Zero coupon bonds
  • IRA and other retirement funds

Those who have provided for Temple Israel in their wills and have notified the Temple of their intent are honored by having their names on the Heritage Society Plaque in the vestibule of the Bertha Abess Sanctuary.

If you have included Temple Israel in your will or have questions about planned gifts to the Temple, please call or email our Executive Director, Scott Brockman, at 305-573-5900, extension 404. Thank you, as always, for your support.
