To the members of the Beth Jacob Legacy Society:
Allow me to express my admiration and appreciation for your participation in this vital component of Beth Jacob's future. We are all proud of the accomplishments and reputation that our Shul has achieved and you have taken the next steps to secure our position for another century and beyond.
Our sages teach us " Chacham Einav B'Rosho" which means that a defining characteristic of wisdom is foresight. Nothing in life is successful without advanced planning and careful preparation; this universal rule applies equally to raising children, starting a business or running a synagogue. By bringing planned giving to the forefront and making a commitment, you have demonstrated your commitment to the future success of the Shul in a selfless and significant way.
Through this lasting pledge, you are making a strong statement to your friends and family that your values are worth preserving, and most importantly, you are backing up your words with action. May Hashem repay your generosity in kind- with abundant blessings to sustain your family and loved ones for many future generations.
With Sincere Appreciation,
Rabbi Avi Goldstein
Message from the Board of Trustees
Dear Legacy Society Members:
The Beth Jacob Congregation Board of Trustees wish to express our sincere thanks for your financial support. Whether cash, stock, real estate, or other possessions, your Legacy gifts will help us succeed in fulfilling the mission of our synagogue.
While some of you have made outright gifts, others have included Beth Jacob in your wills. Working with our planned giving partner, the Columbus Jewish Foundation, some of you have obtained charitable gift annuities for our benefit, and others have named Beth Jacob to benefit from charitable trusts. We even know of those who have made Beth Jacob the beneficiary of life insurance policies and IRA accounts. All of these gifts- whether current or deferred- inspired within us a certain sense of gratitude not only for your generosity, but also for your expression of confidence in our lease and our future.
We realize there are numerous causes and organizations that compete for your charitable interests and this makes us all the more grateful for your support. You honor us with your gifts.
We want you to know that we do not take your generosity for granted. We desire to honor you by making sure Beth Jacob Congregation is all that you hope it to be, both now and for generations to come.
Again, thank you for every gift- past, present and future- that you have or will commit to create a Jewish legacy. We are working hard to be worthy of your trust.
Chances are you already give generously to Jewish charitable organizations. But have you considered including Beth Jacob in your will, or as a beneficiary of your retirement fund, so you can continue to make a difference for generations to come?
