A Gift from Rona Malofsky

Rona Malofsky was a Temple Beth El member for over 50 years before her death in September 2019. Rona and Harvey Malofsky’s four children all attended Religious School and were active in the youth group at TBE.

Together, Rona and Harvey gave their time and talents to Temple Beth El until Harvey passed away in 2013. Rona remained a valued member, volunteering at Temple and with Sisterhood. Rona will be dearly missed by all who knew her.

Rona’s legacy continues through the generous gift she provided to Temple through her trust. Her daughter Lyn, who remains an active member of TBE along with her partner, Jessica Perez, summed up how much TBE meant to her mother and why Rona included TBE in her plans:

“TBE has always served as an anchor for our family. All four of us kids were consecrated at Temple Beth El, and we attended Religious School. Most importantly, we actively participated in the Temple youth group. Through our participation we strengthened our Jewish identity and our knowledge about Judaism and ultimately found a safe place to be and grow in the community. TBE has been there for both family weddings and funerals, but it was our youth group experience above all else that my mom valued.”

Rona's gift will help sustain our Yerusha Fund and provide for improvements to our building. We miss Rona's smile and warmth, and we will remember her with gratitude for her commitment to Temple through her planned gift. Her generosity will be felt for generations to come.
