Thank You to the Family of Marj Tobias

The Tobias name has deep roots at Temple Beth El. Vivian and Joseph Tobias were founding members. Vivian was a Sisterhood president and Joseph was a TBE board president. Harry and Marjorie were both TBE board presidents, and Marjorie was a Sisterhood president. Their daughter Amy was a Sisterhood president (twice) and TBE board president and currently serves as Sisterhood treasurer and upcoming Food-A-Rama co-chair. Granddaughter Molly Fields continues the family TBE leadership tradition as Sisterhood’s vice president for programming.

In addition to their many contributions to TBE capital campaigns, Marjorie and Harry Tobias established the Tobias Jewish Programming Fund at Temple Beth El to support and ensure our engaging programming.

Marjorie and Harry were not only active and generous participants, but they were early TBE Dorot Society members. Dorot legacy members provide advance notification of their commitment to include TBE in their estate planning.
We recently received the Tobiases’ charitable bequest, directed to the Tobias Jewish Programming Fund, from Marjorie’s estate. With this gift, the Tobias family’s generosity will have long-lasting benefits to our congregation.

We are so grateful to the Tobias family and their continued dedication to Temple Beth El.
