Year-End Open Doors Appeal

We have had an extraordinary year. The Covid-19 quarantine has forced us to adapt and reshape the way we pray, celebrate and mourn together. Out of the uncertainty, we have forged community.

Yet we still confront big challenges as a congregation, including our first budget deficit since the Great Recession. Many members face financial uncertainty, even unemployment, and we need to keep these families close and connected.

We need your help NOW. Every December we ask you to help us keep our doors wide open to all who seek to be part of our community. This year our appeal is more urgent than ever. We have set an ambitious goal of raising $100,000 by December 31.

This Chanukah, if you are able, please make a gift to replenish our “oil” and make the lights shine brighter in our Temple in the coming year. Together we are strong and continue moving toward the light.

Click on the Chanukiah below to make a gift.
