It is possible that during the course of construction certain areas in the project will be subject to change - therefore it is important to note that the Naming Opportunities for the Building Together Campaign may require amendments and adjustments. The Campaign Executive Committee will keep all donors updated with this information.

Pursuant to Barnert’s Gift Acceptance Policy:
A donor (or donors) who meets the appropriate minimum gift requirement may name an area of Barnert Temple for twenty-five (25) years. At the conclusion of this time, a previously named designee(s) may rededicate the named space or renew the plaque in return for a gift equal to the lesser of the then-current minimum gift requirement or the cost for the replacement, substantial renovation, or augmentation of the named space.
