Ner Tamid Society | Planned Giving

Congregation Beth Israel’s legacy to our community is to perpetuate Jewish identity for the generations to come. Education, programming, life cycle events, maintaining our beautiful facilities, upkeep of our cemeteries, and employing outstanding clergy are all essential to this continued legacy.

Congregation Beth Israel has established the Ner Tamid Society which is a group of dedicated Beth Israelites who make legacy gifts to ensure the future of the Temple. Just as the Ner Tamid is eternal, gifts to the Ner Tamid Society will be placed in the Beth Israel Endowment Fund for perpetuity, thus ensuring that Congregation Beth Israel will endure for many generations. By planning a gift today to Congregation Beth Isreal, you will ensure a vibrant, dedicated and committed tomorrow for Houston’s reform Jewish community!

But, how can we continue to accomplish all of this? The Congregation cannot thrive on dues alone. We must have a source of income beyond “fair share dues”.

The Hurricane Harvey Flood Fund

Hurricane Harvey left Houston and surrounding areas in a shambles, but the great people of Houston are banding together to help and heal. Your help is welcome and needed. You may send Gift Cards (Kroger, Target, HEB, Lowe’s, or Visa/Mastercard, etc.) to Congregation Beth Israel. They will be immediately distributed to area neighbors to assist in replacing essential items and children’s school supplies.

You may also Donate directly to Congregation Beth Israel by clicking here. All funds will go directly to aid those who need immediate help. These funds will NOT be held to be allocated later. On behalf of our clergy (Rabbi David Lyon, Rabbi Adrienne Scott, Rabbi Joshua Herman, Rabbi Chase Foster, and Cantor Trompeter), David Scott, Executive Director, and Bruce Levy, Temple President, we are very grateful for your kindness, generosity, and help.

Hurt has no shame and no label; we just need to heal one another.

Rabbi David Lyon
