Ezras Torah Endowment Fund:
This major fund, established in 1980, which now maintains 1,310 privately named individual endowments, was originally established to avoid devaluation of the contributors' monies against the deflating value of the Israeli shekel. Currently the principle remains in the United States conservatively invested by the Board of Ezras Torah. The perpetual income generated by this fund is sent to Israel and distributed as Israeli shekels supporting the Medical Assistance Fund and the Orphaned Hachnosos Choson V'Kallah Fund. Named individual endowments made in the merit of a departed loved one can be started with a minimum pledge of $1,000.
Wills, Estates and Legacies:
Ezras Torah's outstanding time honored reputation plus well earned trust for the dispensation of Tzedakah (Charity) and Chesed (Kindness) are among the many reasons why it has been named the beneficiary of almost 5 million dollars from wills, estates and legacies from among our people. The funds realized from these bequests are allocated to Ezras Torah's Tzedakah Programs directly or are used to establish individually named Endowment Funds, Loan Funds, or Medical Assistance Funds all in accordance with the expressed desire of the benefactor. We feel it's important to mention that making a charitable bequest in one's will is taught by the Torah Sages to be an act rewarded with a lengthening of one's own days and a source of constant merit and blessing during one's lifetime.
