Support Aliyah

Temple Aliyah: Building Memories —
Past, Present, and Future

There are many ways to pay tribute to people and events of major significance in your life – or just to help support the synagogue. What better way can there be to celebrate a birthday or anniversary, or to commemorate a Bar or Bat Mitzvah. Any gift you wish to make is gladly accepted. Because no congregation can exist on  membership dues alone, a variety of specific programs have been established, all of which help support the synagogue and its many activities.

MY Aliyah Annual Campaign

MY Aliyah is a new approach to philanthropy that gives you the opportunity to use your annual gift to show support for the programs and ideas you connect with most! Click here to learn more.

Charitable Contributions

Monetary gifts for general support or for a particular program can be made in the form of cash, checks, bank transfers or charges to credit cards.

Tribute Cards

The Synagogue will send cards in your name (postage included) to celebrate birthdays, anniversaries, key lifecycle events, get-well messages and bereavement cards. Torah Fund contributions are made through the Women of Aliyah.

Garden of Aliyah

Where memories grow on trees: On the west wall of the sanctuary, you’ll see a beautiful “garden” of trees in gold, silver and bronze tones. Each leaf preserves a special moment in the life of one of our congregants. Some commemorate B’nai Mitzvah, anniversaries or birthdays; some give thanks for recovery from illness; some just celebrate life. Also available are garden stones and tree trunks, each of which bears a special message from its donor.

Employee Matching Program

Many companies have a philanthropic program in place that matches, in whole or in part, gifts given by employees to the non-profit tax-exempt organization of the employee’s choice. The human resources department of your company can advise you if this program exists and if so, of the criteria and requirements.

Fundraising Events

Temple Aliyah hosts various fundraising events annually. These events are a great success each year due to the enthusiastic support of our members.

Planned Giving

This is the simplest way to explain the true essence of planned gifts. We plan our lives each day. We plan our religious and family celebrations. We plan for our children’s education. We plan for our retirement. We even plan for our eventual passing. And sometimes, in the process of all this planning, we discover ways to do all these things, and benefit ourselves as well as future generations.

Bequests, gift of insurance, gifts of real estate, stocks and securities, and gifts that provide lifetime income (charitable gift annuities) can provide significant future resources to Temple Aliyah while providing you with income, tax and personal benefits, and reducing estate and gift taxes.

You may gain some or all of these benefits:

  • The satisfaction of making a significant gift to Temple Aliyah during your lifetime
  • Lifetime income for yourself or others, with the possibility of an improved yield on your assets
  • An immediate income tax charitable deduction yielding current tax savings
  • Freedom from capital gains tax when using long-term, appreciated property to make a gift
  • The ability to defer income to a later date, such as retirement
  • Reduction of the size of your taxable estate

All those who have made Temple Aliyah a part of their estate plan or have create a planned gift with Temple Aliyah become members of our legacy society. For further information please contact the office at 818-346-3545.

Temple Aliyah will be happy to work with your advisor to ensure that your gift will have the greatest possible impact in your support of Temple Aliyah.
