Please indicate the particular fund to which you would like your donation to go. Undesignated donations will go to general operations. 


Annual Terumah

We no longer require dues or a set fee to join the synagogue. Instead, members make an annual, self-defined, financial commitment. This is the primary fund we use to support our general operations, including Rabbi and staff salaries.

You may contribute your terumah in the following ways: 

  • Cash or check
  • Monthly giving with a credit or debit card
  • A gift of stock. Transfer securities electronically via DTC # 0701. Contact our office for more information.
  • IRA gift: Make a gift directly from your required annual distribution. This is tax deductible. Contact your financial advisor or the office for more information. 

Building Fund

We still welcome contributions to this fund to help pay off the costs of the completed renovation of our Temple building. Please make a note on your check or donation to designate funds towards the Building Fund.
