Legacy Society



Help secure Congregation Har HaShem’s future in your future.




Ordinary people can make extraordinary gifts to secure Har HaShem’s lasting impact upon our members, friends and community. Whether it’s a gift of stock, IRA rollover or beneficiary designation, real estate, life insurance policy or a gift in your will or trust, there are many simple ways to meet your goals, provide for your loved ones and leave a legacy for future generations.

If you have already made plans for a gift, we would like to thank you and recognize you, by name or anonymously, as a member of Har HaShem's Legacy Society. Please email to let us know.

If you have not made plans yet, there are many ways to support Har HaShem while receiving tax benefits for yourself, your family and your heirs. 

Here are ideas to consider for planning a gift to Har HaShem in the future. Consult your professional advisors to explore the advantages for your specific situation.

  • Designate Har Hashem as beneficiary of a percentage, a specific amount, or the entire benefit of your retirement account, life insurance policy, annuity or pension.
  • Make a gift in your will or trust.
  • Donate real estate or appreciated stock to Har HaShem.
  • Make a gift through a charitable trust or family foundation.
