In 2017, as announced in our Summer 2017 Newsletter, our Shul established the Historic B'nai Jacob Endowment Fund in cooperation with the Jewish Community Foundation of Central PA.  The Fund is administered by the Foundation and provides income to supplement and not replace annual giving to the Shul's general fund through legacy giving through wills, retirement fund distributions, direct contributions or other forms of assets that can be discussed with the Foundation and with your own financial advisors.  You can also contact our Shul Treasurer (Larry Kapenstein) (email: lkap@comcast.net) or Board Member Ed Beck (Phone: (717) 576-5038) for information. 


You do not need to make an amount commitment upfront and can simply sign a Letter of Intent to designate B'nai Jacob as part of your legacy giving program. Letters of Intent may be secured through the Foundation by calling 717-236-9555 Ext 1 (contact: Rebecca Robinson or Paulette Keifer) and there is also a link to a Letter of Intent Form provided here (letter of intent form).

B'nai Jacob was here for you when you arrived because of estate planning and Foundation giving of members who came  before you and it's important for it to be there for those who come after us.
