Planned Giving
The Tzaddikim Society

Being a Tzaddik (righteous person) in your own time calls for recognition. That's why we have created the Tzaddikim Society. Membership in the society is open to concerned individuals like you who care deeply about Judaism and who wish to support JTS through bequests in their wills and other planned gifts.

There are many ways to give to JTS. You may give a percentage of your estate or specific property, securities or real estate.

Please consider a bequest or other planned gift to JTS. As a member of the Tzaddikim Society, you will have the satisfaction of knowing that you are helping to secure the future of Conservative Judaism. Your name will be recognized in the Tzaddikim Society category of our annual report.

The JTS Planned Giving Program exists to encourage you to plan your charitable gifts to your maximum advantage. Because tax laws favor charitable giving by providing substantial tax deductions, the ways you decide to give will affect the benefits for you and your family—now and in the future.

We welcome the opportunity to work with you in planning for your future and the future of JTS by way of:

•  Bequests
•  Life Insurance
•  Charitable Remainder Trusts
•  Charitable Gift Annuities
•  Charitable Lead Trusts

For more information on any of the opportunities here, contact Rabbi Abby Treu at (212) 678-8805 or at abtreu@jtsa.edu.
