Ner Tamid Society

By designating WRJ as a beneficiary of your estate and notifying WRJ of your intention to make a planned gift, you will become a member of WRJ's Ner Tamid Society.

WRJ's Ner Tamid Society allows members to make bequests that ensure their legacies and guarantees that WRJ has the resources necessary to reach its goals and objectives for many decades to come.

Making a planned gift offers the opportunity to ensure your legacy and to continue your support in perpetuity. Your bequest will enable WRJ to continue strengthening Reform Judaism l’dor vador (from generation to generation) and promises tomorrow’s Jews a strong future. Because you are planning today, WRJ will grow and thrive in its second century. Download our brochure to learn more. 

“I did not find this world desolate when I entered it.
My parents planted for me before I was born,

So I plant for those who will come after me.”
