Temple Kol Ami Emanu-El strives to create a Temple family for all our members. Since our inception we have celebrated thousands of b’nai mitzvah, and uncounted numbers of baby namings, consecrations, confirmations, weddings, anniversaries and other joyous life-cycle events. We have also stood by each other during challenging times: a shoulder to cry on, someone to hug, a caring committee to help with shiva – this is our Temple family.

Your charitable contributions to Temple Kol Ami Emanu-El will help ensure that the values and ideas, the celebrations and unique occasions, which have linked our people in an unbreakable chain of tradition for three thousand years will be perpetuated for future generations. Your contributions will have a meaningful effect on the lives of the thousands to whom Kol Ami Emanu-El is home as well as the people beyond our walls who we continue to help.

Planned Giving & Endowment

The future of Reform Judaism and our Temple belongs to those who will follow us. Our task is to provide future generations with the resources to keep our Temple healthy and vibrant so that our children and their children’s children will have a “Center of Our Jewish Community” in which to model their own understanding of their tradition.

Our Temple’s state-of-the-art educational facilities and our dynamic youth programming teach our children about the beauty and relevance of our heritage as they mark the milestones of their lives.

Our Temple celebrations of Chanukah, Purim, Pesach and Mitzvah Day teach our children about the beauty, joy and fun of our tradition while simultaneously teaching them about our history, calling and promise for a better tomorrow for all humankind.
