Life and Legacy



LIFE & LEGACY, a signature program of the Harold Grinspoon Foundation, is a program to help ensure Jewish tomorrows. Temple Beth Emet was chosen, along with 13 other local Jewish organizations by the Jewish Federation of Broward County to participate in this program.

Everyone, regardless of age, wealth or affiliation has the ability to leave a legacy and the Life & Legacy process is very easy. It all starts with a conversation.

If you have already named Temple Beth Or as a beneficiary, please let us know, as you are already a LIFE & LEGACY donor. If not, please consider becoming a LIFE & LEGACY donor by contacting the Temple Office.


  • Bequests: Make a donation to Temple Beth Emet while preserving your assets during your lifetime. A gift may be a dollar amount, a specific asset, a percentage or the remainder of your estate once all other bequests have been satisfied.

  • Charitable Trusts: You can leave a donation to Temple Beth Emet through a charitable remainder or lead trust by naming Temple Beth Emet as the beneficiary.
  • Life Insurance Policies: Designate Temple Beth Emet as a beneficiary of a life insurance policy and if ownership of a policy is transferred to Temple Beth Emet during your lifetime, receive an income tax charitable deduction.
  • Retirement Plans: Designate Temple Beth Emet as an after-death beneficiary of your IRA or other qualified retirement plans and make a tax-free estate gift.
  • Alternative Assets: Donations can be received in the form of a residence-real property, charitable git annuity, cash or other assets.
