Securing our Future

Aventura Turnberry Jewish Center is proud to announce the creation of the L’Dor Vador Foundation, a collaborative endowment program in partnership with the Greater Miami Jewish Federation, to ensure a bright and vibrant future for our synagogue for generations to come.

The L’Dor Vador Foundation provides a way for members and friends of ATJC to perpetually help develop and sustain the congregation now and in the future. It is a permanent fund; only its earnings will be spent. When funds are available and distributed, they will support projects above and beyond normal budgeted items, as well as ongoing operations.

Because you are amongst our most loyal donors, we wanted you to be one of the first to know about this exciting, groundbreaking initiative. Through the years, you have generously given your time and resources to help build and grow our synagogue into one of the most important congregations in the United States. Now, you can help ensure the future of ATJC with a legacy gift of any size.

Where would we be without ATJC? Our community has always been there for us. The time has come for us to commit together to investing in its future generations by securing after-lifetime charitable gifts as part of our new L’Dor Vador foundation.

Your commitment towards a strong endowment will enable our children’s children to thrive in our cherished congregation.

Establish Your Intent

By establishing your own personal Jewish Legacy to benefit the Aventura Turnberry Jewish Center, you will help secure the Jewish future for our community for years to come.

You can create your Jewish Legacy Gift by declaring your intent to provide for the congregation in your will or estate plans. You can also make your commitment with a current gift of any amount. You can customize your gift to meet your dreams, fit your lifestyle and align with your personal

and family’s financial needs.

Consider establishing your intent by making the following declaration: “In the tradition of those who came before me, I affirm that I have, either, (a) already provided for the future of Aventura Turnberry Jewish Center through a legacy gift, or (b) plan to do so in the manner described.” While not a legal document, your Declaration of Intent indicates your heartfelt

promise that your will or estate plan will include instructions to provide for the support and future of ATJC. By creating your Jewish legacy, you will leave a lasting imprint on our community for generations.
