Create a Jewish Legacy

Sustaining Beit Ahavah for Generations

Jewish teachings tell us that it is our obligation to “repair the world” for generations to come. By using your will or other estate planning vehicles, you can leave a lasting impact in our community that is most meaningful to you.


  • Gift Through Your Will, allows Beit Ahavah to honor your intentions and recognize your gift today.  
  • Charitable Gift Annuity can be funded by transferring cash or securities to Beit Ahavah and receive a lifetime annuity payment from your gift. The rate is based on your age and the number of annuitants. You receive a charitable income tax deduction based on the age and number of annuitants (generally, the donor or the donor and the donor’s spouse). Your deduction may be claimed in the year of your gift up to the contribution ceilings previously outlined. You avoid immediate capital gains tax on the transfer of appreciated securities, and the annual payment is based on the fair market value of your gift.
  • ​A Gift of a Life Insurance Policy to Beit Ahavah that is no longer needed for its original purpose. Simply ask your life insurance company for a Designation of Beneficiary form. To make an irrevocable transfer that will receive gift credit, you must name Beit Ahavah as the beneficiary and owner. You will receive gift credit for the cash surrender value of the policy and may claim that value as an income tax deduction in the year of the transfer.
  • Create a “Named” Endowment Fund – Your named Endowment Fund allows your gift to support the program your care about most, now and for generations to come. 

A bequest, a provision in your will, is the easiest way to establish a legacy for Beit Ahavah and reduce your taxable estate. Donating a planned gift to Beit Ahavah allows you to support, strengthen, and build our Jewish community for generations to come!
