You will ensure a strong, vibrant and engaging community that will perpetuate your values into the future.

Just as the Ner Tamid is eternal, gifts to the Ner Tamid Society will be placed in the Temple Beth Or Endowment Fund for perpetuity, thus ensuring that Temple Beth Or will endure for many generations.
