"If you are able to do so, you should support
the Jewish community where you live...
It won't be there for those who come after
if those who can give don't give now.
It's as simple as that."

The Rabbi David Lieb Endowment fund is an extraordinary example of what it means to be a blessing. Since its establishment in 2005, our leadership and community have made an incredible investment toward securing the future of our spiritual home. In addition, we provide exciting and gratifying enhancements beyond what a congregation of our size could normally afford. The Endowment Fund annually contributes a portion of the earnings to the temple's operating budget, facilitating superior programming which would not be available without the endowment. 

With unprecedented commitment to building the resources to sustain our community for decades beyond our lifetime, the members of the Endowment Governing Board, Leadership Team, and Investment Committee are engaged in raising funds, managing assets, and allocating dollars for each phase of the Endowment Fund's development. The results of this engagement and vision will allow us to affirm our long-standing Jewish presence in the South Bay, especially noteworthy as we build on more than 90 years of commitment to our members.


Beyond our leadership, the depth of caring of our membership leaves us in awe. Even throughout these uncertain economic times, our Temple Beth El congregants have been exceedingly generous. Since 2005, we have received contributions--both large and small--in cash and three- to five-year pledges totalling over $3,000,000. We also have an ever-growing number of members choosing to leave a legacy in their estate trusts and wills. These are all tangible affirmations of our values.

The investment in our future taking place through the Rabbi David Lieb Endowment Fund is driven by the increased involvement of nearly two hundred families who support our mission to bless future generations with a strong and vibrant home of Reform Judaism.

We are indeed blessed at Temple Beth El with a great heritage, great values, and great vision. Our sincere hope is that, with your help, our investment in building our endowment will remain an enduring blessing for this congregation, now and forever.
