Kol Nidrei Appeal

L’dor Vador: From Generation to Generation

Throughout our history, TBI has relied on the generosity of our members and friends to support our programs and ensure our growth and development. 

Our founders had a vision of a synagogue that would be relevant, accessible and quintessentially Australian. Enthusiastically they gave both time and money to our congregation when most had little of either. Their children, and the generation that followed, were equally bold in their desire to grow our movement and worked tirelessly to seed communities and establish schools. The third generation have brought passion and professionalism to TBI and have helped to ensure that we are not only Melbourne’s preeminent House of Prayer but that we also serve as a vital House of Assembly and a respected House of Learning. We rightfully have much to be proud of!

Thanks to your incredible support over recent years, we will soon achieve all that we have promised and more by securing our facility and our community.

Our challenge now is to secure our future by ensuring that TBI continues to be a place of meaning and belonging for our children and grandchildren – the fourth and fifth generations of our congregation – by reducing our dependence on membership income to fund our operations. To achieve this, we are launching the L’dor Vador Endowment Fund, which we believe will be our generation’s greatest contribution to securing our future. In time, we will be contacting each of you and asking you to consider TBI and the L’dor Vador Endowment Fund as part of your estate planning, but in the short term, the Board has committed to preserving all funds raised as part of our 2017 Kol Nidrei Appeal as the seed capital for our endowment.

We ask you give generously either to TBI directly, or help release operational funds into the endowment by giving to either of our tax-deductible education or cultural funds.

Together, we can ensure that Temple Beth Israel continues L’dor Vador – from generation to generation.
