Giving At B'nai Shalom

Our synagogue has a variety of donation opportunities and tribute funds providing ways to support the congregation at all different levels. Of primary importance is the Annual Campaign, which is a critical component of B’nai Shalom’s operating budget. Other meaningful giving opportunities include, for example, dedicating a leaf on the Tree of Life to mark a special occasion or memorialize a loved one, or a Yahrzeit Memorial Plaque. There are opportunities throughout the year to sponsor a Kiddush or a favorite B’nai Shalom program, such as Sisterhood luncheons, special guest lecturer or the Purim Spiel. You may also choose to make a contribution to support our adult education program, learners@bnaishalom.net, the Rabbis' Discretionary Fund or one of many worthwhile designated funds.
