Legacy Giving: Or Hadash
Making a legacy gift to BJ through Or Hadash ensures that your commitment to our spirited and dynamic community continues to help us grow, innovate and make lasting social change for generations to come. Legacy giving also helps you make a larger contribution than a cash gift, which furthers your support for BJ–while providing tax and other financial benefits to you.
To include BJ in your will or living trust, we suggest including the following language:
“I give to Congregation B’nai Jeshurun Starafroler, a not-for-profit institution incorporated by the laws of the State of New York, having as its principal address 257 West 88th Street, New York, NY 10024, federal tax ID #13-0594858. [the sum of $______ or _____% of my estate [or residuary estate] to be used for its general purposes.”
To include BJ as a beneficiary of your retirement, IRA, or life insurance policy follow these 3 easy steps:
- Contact your retirement plan administrator, insurance company, bank or financial institution for a change-of-beneficiary form. Decide what percentage (1 to 100) you would like us to receive and name us, along with the percentage you chose, on the beneficiary form. Include BJ’s federal tax ID # 13-0594858
- Return the completed form to your plan administrator, insurance company, bank or financial institution.
- Notify us so we can include you in Or Hadash, BJ’s legacy society.

At both times of joy and sorrow, BJ’s spiritual leaders, staff, and the broader community have been there for me. I have seen the significance of what BJ has done and continues to do within the BJ community and more broadly in the Jewish world. With a focus on helping BJ to sustain itself financially for the future, I have made a significant bequest to BJ’s Endowment given the important role that the endowment plays in BJ’s financial health.Les Nelson
I am so proud to be a member of BJ for all that BJ gives to me and to the Jewish community worldwide. I am committed to BJ for its vision and significance in the advancement of the Jewish community in New York, across the country and around the world and want to ensure that BJ and its important work will continue for many, many generations to come. Therefore, I have named BJ the beneficiary of one of my IRA accounts.Donna Nadler
BJ has always been a source of joy for me even, or maybe especially, in times of sorrow; that joy is priceless. But as a single person with no family to support me I feel the need to be careful with my finances to ensure that I can adequately support my needs in my lifetime. But mentioning BJ in my will allows me to express my gratitude without impacting my finances. Though I will not be there to benefit from my donation, my heart is full knowing that BJ will be able to change and enrich lives for generations to come.Carol Gelles
