Ezras Torah Endowment Fund:
This major fund, established in 1980, which now maintains over one thousand and eighty privately Named individual endowments, was established to avoid devaluation
of the contributors' monies against the deflating value of the Israeli shekel. The monies remain in the United States and are safeguarded in U.S. currency. The
income generated by this fund is sent to Israel and distributed as Israeli shekels via the Interest Free Loan Program or the Emergency Medical Assistance Program
according to the expressed desire of the benefactor. Named individual endowments made in the merit and memory of a departed loved one, or in honor of a special
anniversary, person or event. Funds can be started with a minimum pledge of $1,000. Ezras Torah arranges for Yahrzeit, Kaddish, Mishnayot and other Memorial
services in Jerusalem when required.
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 2 million dollars from wills, estates and legacies from among our people.
The funds realized from these bequests are allocated to Ezras Torah's Programs directly or to the Ezras Torah Endowment Fund (which is then distributed through
the Interest Free Loan or the Emergency Medical Assistance Funds) 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.
