Supporting Temple Shalom's Endowment




Joan Kalin - In gratitude for fifty-five years (so far!) of a wonderful, caring community. Weddings, b’nai mitzvahs, confirmations, baby namings for four generations of the Kalin Family! My husband Stanley was president and it has been my honor to serve in many capacities though the years—vice president, committee chairs, Board member, Sisterhood president. I’ve studied, learned, grown. I have received so much and now is my chance to give back. It is important to me that Temple Shalom thrives. L’dor v’dor!

An estate gift can be the perfect way to strengthen our Jewish community in permanent ways.

Your gift will:

  • Continue your support of Temple Shalom’s values and causes.
  • Leave the world a better place and make a difference: tikkun olam.
  • Ensure future generations can experience our wonderful religious community.


How to Give

  • Name Temple Shalom as a beneficiary in your IRA or life insurance policy. (Most convenient.)
  • Add a bequest in your will or living trust when you create or update your will.


Determining the Amount of your Gift?

It is our hope that all our members be part of the Generation to Generation Circle, no matter the size of the gift.

If you have an exact amount in mind simply specify it.

If you don’t know what you can afford because it is off in the future, pick a percentage you think would work for you. To limit the amount simply set a top dollar amount. (For example, you chose to leave1% of your estate but no more than $10,000.)

Make Temple Shalom part of your legacy. Let us answer your questions. Contact or contact Rachel Miller in full confidence at 516-754-7439.
