Charitable Giving is an important tradition for the Beth Am congregation. Making a gift to Beth Am offers a wonderful way to affirm your values and priorities and protect our future Jewish way of life.


Honoring a loved one through charitable gifts is often an especially meaningful act of paying tribute to someone special, while assuring that worth while continue to influence our children, grandchildren and the world around us.


Gifts That make A Difference ... Simha or Remembrance:


Gifts made in honor of family and friends at times such as a Bar / Bat Mitzvah, birth of a child or grandchild, anniversary or other notable occasion can be gifts of love that show how much you care.


Gifts of cash or check are the most popular methods of memorial giving. Such gifts are convenient and can be tax deductible. Click here to view the different funds available at Beth Am.


Other Property: Memorial gifts may also be funded with assets such as stock, bonds and mutual funds. You not only receive regular tax savings, but you avoid the capital gains tax on qualified assets given for charitable use. This extra tax benefit is one reason why a growing number of congregants choose to make memorial gifts using assets other than cash.

Rimon Society

Many discover that their long-range estate and financial plans provide a thoughtful way to make memorial gifts to honor others. Consider the following ways to leave a legacy in memory of a special friend or loved one

A gift included in your will or living trust can establish a lasting legacy. A gift of excess retirement funds such as pension plans or Individual Retirement Accounts (IRAs) may allow you to give more while eliminating taxes that may otherwise largely deplete these assets.


Gifts of life insurance that have fulfilled their original purpose may offer excellent tax benefits. Policies that you purchased to protect a loved one who no longer needs that protection can be an excellent way to make a gift in honor of that person.
