Donate Now to the Campaign!

A Home for the Future of Judaism

So many who have made gifts to the Campaign have told us how proud they are to be part of building the new space.

There are still families to speak with and goals to reach, so our Campaign will continue in January and February. Please make a multi-year pledge to help us get there if you have not yet done so.

If you have already made a gift, please consider increasing your pledge – or make an additional gift to the Campaign if you are able. It will take all of us stretching to get to our goal.

Our Campaign will also receive an additional $100,000 incentive gift if we reach 1,000 donor families or individuals to the Campaign. Help us cross this threshold! The deadline for this incentive is March 31. Won’t you be counted, too?

This is a special time in the life of our community, requiring much from many. We are up to this important and sacred task of building our Jewish world together.

If you are able to stretch for a gift at or above $10,000, you also will be recognized on our new Donor Wall. It’s going to be a meaningful addition to the Reception Hall just outside our new sanctuary. Deadline for recognition on the new wall is March 31.

Please make your gift with a check, or pay or pledge online (click on DONATE button below). You can transfer stock or use your Required Minimum Distribution from your IRA to fulfill your gift. You can also call or email Hannah Moore.

Rodef Reads
