Bequest - Creating a Jewish Future

Leaving a charitable bequest to Chabad is the easiest and most common form of gift that our partners utilize. This is a simple and straight forward way to guarantee a Jewish future, long after you are no longer alive. If you wish, you can designate your bequest to be used for a specific project, building or use.

How a Bequest Works

  • You designate either a percentage or a specific amount to Chabad to ensure a Jewish Legacy.
  • A bequest does not cost you anything during your lifetime.
  • After your passing, the trustee will transfer the money or real estate to our institution.
  • Bequests are revocable and can be changed or modified during your lifetime.
  • Bequests can relieve the tax burden of your family.
  • This is the most Popular way for individuals to leave a Jewish Legacy.

Residuary Bequest - Chabad is given a percentage of the estate.

Outright Bequest - Chabad is given a specific dollar amount or a specific asset, such as securities, assets or real estate.
