Endowment Funds & other named funds

General Use

General Endowment Funds provide invaluable resources to Temple Beth El,  covering unanticipated opportunities or expenses, and ensuring that Temple Beth El will always be there for our congregants and our Boca Raton Jewish community.


Temple Beth El strives to welcome anyone who wishes to participate in Jewish life, even when their ability to pay for membership, education or programs is limited. Everyone from Early Learning Center families to senior citizens on a fixed income may apply for scholarship assistance.

Arts, Music & Culture

Cultural education and programming bring Judaism to life for many of our congregants and the greater Boca Raton Jewish community.  These endowments help fund concerts, guest artists, writers and composers; commissioned artwork throughout our two campuses; and the spirited, musical Shabbat services we look forward to each Friday night.

Education & Youth

Through education and engagement of children from preschool through 12th grade, we strive to create literate and confident Jewish adults who find meaning in their identity and their tradition. These endowments fund innovative and on-going educational programs for our children, including interfaith programs, special needs education, teen travel to Israel, and Holocaust education, all designed to instill knowledge of and participation in Reform Judaism.

Facilities, Technology
& Mausoleum

Investing in our infrastructure is investing our future, ensuring our facilities are here and up-to-date for generations to come.
