Temple Solel congregants are deeply involved in the life of the synagogue with a strong commitment to its mission and its traditions. Their generosity of spirit, resources and time reflect their belief in the strength of Temple Solel. Endowment gifts are “forever gifts.” They connect us to the legacy of those who have come before us, and help us to leave our own legacy for the future.

In 2012, Temple Solel established the Temple Solel Endowment Foundation as a separate not-for-profit corporation guided by a separate board of directors. The Endowment Board is charged with growing the endowment as well as providing financial oversight of endowment funds. Funds are invested and managed by a professional management firm.

Dues and contributions support the daily operation of the Temple. A strong endowment will help sustain and grow the many services and programs provided by Temple Solel.

For further information on endowment opportunities, contact the President of the Temple Solel Endowment Foundation Board, Richard Lamden at
