An Endowment is Forever
TBE endowments are linked to important aspects of Temple Life. The purpose of endowments is to provide a stable financial future for TBE by involving congregants in the charitable activities of the congregation.
This year, as a way to honor the enormous contributions of Cantor Annie Rose over the past twenty years, TBE has established the Music and Spirituality Endowment in Honor of Cantor Annie Rose. The Temple is profoundly grateful to Annie for all that she has done to make TBE a unique, vibrant Reform congregation. It is a wonderful way to honor Annie’s legacy. Monies generated from this endowment will be used to sustain and enrich both music and spirituality - two areas of Temple life that we proudly associate with Annie Rose.
TBE has two other endowment funds: the Melvin and Lois Levy Endowment Fund and the Sundelson Library Endowment Fund. The Levy Endowment Fund honors the Rabbi’s parents and is used to support an annual program of the Rabbi’s choice. The Sundelson Endowment Fund is used to purchase books, computers and other educational resources for the library. All three endowment funds are invested in the Jewish Community Foundation’s funds that are managed by financial experts from across the country with an excellent rate of return.
Congregants may also set up restricted endowments to leave a personal or honorary legacy. In addition, bequests and estate gifts can be made for this purpose. If you would like more information, please call the TBE office at 734-665-4744 to speak with SooJi Min, the executive director of TBE.
