Temple Israel relies on the generosity of our members to continue serving the Jewish community.  Honor special moments in the lives of your family and friends with a tribute, and invest in our legacy with your gift. 


We use tzedakah to honor a loved one or mark a special occasion. These donations are called Tributes, and there are a variety of ways they can be made at Temple.  Learn more about tributes and our different funds.

There are many opportunities to assist in expanding Temple Israel’s endowment through a gift of a bequest, trust, or other provision that provides sustained income.  Gifts to the Endowment support Temple’s strong Reform Jewish tradition and outreach to continue for generations. Established endowments allow all members of the congregation and the community who are interested in supporting this mission to do so, regardless of personal income or the ultimate gift amount.
