At Temple Beth Sholom we are blessed with a high number of dedicated volunteers who contribute countless hours of time and energy to make our community vibrant and productive. But there are many costs that cannot be met by volunteers.
Beyond membership dues, our synagogue depends on creative fundraising and donations to maintain our facilities, fund events, and to pay our excellent staff.
There are so many ways you can support our community including direct donations and a variety of ongoing passive fundraisers. Most of these fundraisers involve a very small investment of your time and then bring money to the synagogue over and over again. A household participating in these programs can easily generate $200 to $2000 a year. Have a look, sign up, and start contributing today!
Or, if you would like to make a general donation please visit our online payments page.
