Endowment Funds

Each of our three endowment funds has a particular focus. As is usual with endowments, principal investments are untouchable and are invested for perpetuity. Only the interest earned is spent annually.

Temple Israel Cultural Endowment

The interest on this fund, established in 1988, supports multiple cultural and educational events taking place at the Temple and in the community each year. Recent examples include the klezmer band at Simchat Torah, Community Passover Seder, Break the Fast after Yom Kippur, bus trips to Boston cultural events, speakers at Yom Hashoah commemoration, new member dinner and multiple Sisterhood and Hebrew school events and programs.

Dinnerman-Rottenberg Educational Endowment

The interest on this fund directly supports our Religious School. Substantial growth of this fund may eventually allow our Religious School to be free for all students.

Institutional Operating Endowment

The interest on this fund directly supports the operating budget of Temple Israel. The principal will never be spent. This fund will assure the continued presence of a Jewish community on the seacoast in perpetuity.
