The purpose of this fund is to secure long-term funding for the maintenance of the shul that will enable Poale Zedeck to continue to function as a vibrant contributor to Jewish life in Pittsburgh for many years to come. Earmarked funds donated to the shul will go directly to the Legacy Fund. The money in this account can be used for special purposes and ideally the principal funds are to remain intact.
