Memorial Gifts

For those that are unable to say Kaddish for a family member, Talmudical Academy will recite the prayers on their behalf in our synagogue for the year of mourning. Relatives will also be notified each year in advance of the yahrzeit and will receive notices of the appropriate yizkor times during the year. To set up a Kaddish and Yartzeit gift for a loved one, please click here or call (410) 484-6600 ext 314.

Dedicate a Day of Learning

Consider sponsoring a Day of Learning as an appropriate and fitting tribute in honor of, or in memory of, a loved one; a merit for a refuah sheleima– a complete and speedy recovery; or even to commemorate a special occasion or birthday. On the day you reserve, announcements will be made in each classroom specifically mentioning your dedication. To dedicate a Day of Learning at Talmudical Academy, please click here or contact Rabbi Yaakov Lefkovitz at (410) 484-6600 ext 317, or by email at ynk@talmudicalacademy.org.

Investment Donations

The transfer of appreciated assets, such as stocks, bonds and mutual funds allows donors to support Talmudical Academy while reducing exposure to capital gains taxes. Donors are also able to claim immediate income tax deductions for these gifts. To discuss any of these options, please contact Rabbi Yehuda Lefkovitz at (410) 484-6600 ext 305, or by email at ryl@talmudicalacademy.org.

Endowments

Providing for the vibrant future of Jewish education is one of the most important actions we can take as concerned, committed Jews. Talmudical Academy’s endowment fund, founded in conjunction with the Russel Family Generations Day School Endowment Project, allows donors to make an enduring endowment to benefit Talmudical Academy. Your legacy gift will last forever because endowments are permanent. There are a number of ways, each with its own tax and philanthropic benefits, that you can plan your legacy through an endowment donation. And, because you are planning for the future, it does not have to cost anything today. To discuss endowment opportunities, please contact Rabbi Yehuda Lefkovitz at (410) 484-6600 ext 305, or by email at ryl@talmudicalacademy.org.

Charitable Bequests

Gifts made through wills, trusts or estate plans both reduce donors’ taxable estates and create lasting legacies. These types of gifts can be used to fund endowment funds, operating and capital expenses, and special projects. To discuss making a charitable bequest to Talmudical Academy, please contact Rabbi Yehuda Lefkovitz at (410) 484-6600 ext 305, or by email at ryl@talmudicalacademy.org.

Life Insurance

Life insurance gifts are particularly appealing to younger donors. Donors may name Talmudical Academy as the owner and beneficiary of a life insurance policy. Premiums on such policies are tax deductible. To discuss making a life insurance gift to Talmudical Academy, please contact Rabbi Yehuda Lefkovitz at (410) 484-6600 ext 305, or by email at ryl@talmudicalacademy.org.

IRA/Retirement Plans

IRA and retirement plans can be subject to high estate taxes. When planning your legacy for our yeshiva, consider using these assets first. To discuss any of these options, please contact Rabbi Yehuda Lefkovitz at (410) 484-6600 ext 305, or by email at ryl@talmudicalacademy.org.

Charitable Gift Annuity or Remainder Trust

By naming Talmudical Academy as the beneficiary of an annuity or remainder trust, donors help to assure TA’s long-term financial security while securing for themselves annual income for life, eligibility for immediate income tax deductions, and possible reductions in exposure to capital gains taxes. To discuss charitable gift annuities or remainder trusts, please contact Rabbi Yehuda Lefkovitz at (410) 484-6600 ext 305, or by email at ryl@talmudicalacademy.org.
