* may their memory be a blessing

The Emanu-El Legacy Circle was established to honor
and recognize the individuals and families who have left
legacies to Congregation Emanu-El, and those who have
made charitable provisions in their estates to benefit our
synagogue.

Including Congregation Emanu-El in your estate planning
promises your children and future generations a place of
worship, study and community. Your legacy gift automatically
makes you a member of the Emanu-El Legacy Circle.
With your permission, your commitment to the congregation
will be honored by a permanent place of recognition at the
synagogue as a tribute to your values and generosity, you will
be acknowledged in our donor reports, and invited to special
events during the year.

There are several ways to leave a legacy to
Congregation Emanu-El
:

– Name the synagogue in your will or estate plan as a
recipient of a set percentage or dollar amount of your
estate

– Designate Emanu-El as a beneficiary to a life insurance
policy, retirement fund, or IRA

– Make a bequest of real estate, a valuable work of art or
other personal property

Unrestricted gifts provide Emanu-El with the maximum
flexibility to allocate funds where the need is greatest. If
you wish to designate a more specific purpose 
to your gift,
please consider one of the broad areas that serve our
congregation’s 
core mission – worship and spirituality, Jewish
education, or community and social justice; 
and
let us know, so we can ensure that we will be able to honor
your wishes.

The following sample provision may be helpful to you and
your attorney.

I bequeath to Congregation Emanu-El, Two Lake Street,
San Francisco, California 94118, the sum of $ _________ *
[or ________percent of my estate] for its general charitable,
religious and educational purposes.

If you have made a provision in your will, or would like more
information on the Emanu-El Legacy Circle, please contact  
Tali Siegal, Associate Director of Development by phone at (415) 640-4695 or by via email at [email protected]
