Congregation B'nai Shalom High Holy Days Appeal

From our President Rob Blumberg:

It was wonderful to see so many of you at the High Holy Days. Seeing both our Sanctuary and Social Hall completely full for services fills me with great enthusiasm for the New Year 5779 for our community.

Our High Holy Day Appeal is still open. Our goal for our 40th year is 100% participation from our congregation. While not everyone may be able to give, we are asking those that can do a little more to contribute an extra $40 or more for another family who cannot contribute which will enable us to get to 100% by working as a community.

Giving to B’nai Shalom is not only an investment in our spiritual home, it is an act of gratitude for the gifts it provides to us. The High Holiday Appeal is an annual opportunity to sustain and support B’nai Shalom by making a meaningful donation to its operating budget so that we can continue valuable programs for members of all ages. We are also asking you one simple question: “Why do you contribute?” The “Why?” question  enables you to reflect on what Jewish life means to you and it will help us to understand more about our Congregation and what is important to you.

We ask you to be generous - here is how I like to think about a contribution to Congregation B'nai Shalom in terms of my everyday life.:

Total Annual Donation Donation How it breaks down
$1,080 "Latte" One small $3 latte per day
$720 "Wings and Soda" One $60 family dinner per month
$360 "Street Parking" One hour of metered parking per day.


Thank you for your generosity.
(e.g. In memory of, In honor of, Thanking)
