High Holy Day Annual Appeal

Your Gift Will Impact Our Future. Our Goal is 100% Participation!  We need everyone's help!

As we approach the High Holidays, we begin anew counting our blessings, asking for forgiveness and providing forgiveness to others.  One of our blessings we share is the strength of our congregation.  your volunteer efforts and financial contributions allow us to offer extensive programming and maintain our beautiful facility. For that, we are truly grateful. You make us who we are and give us the power to do what we do.

Unfortunately, our work is never done. In order to continue to support you and your family, we appeal to you to support our annual High Holiday Campaign. These funds directly impact the operations of the synagogue, as our dues do not fully cover our expenses, so we  must find a way to bridge the gap, now and in years to come.

Currently, our anneal operating budget includes”

  • $58,000 in subsidies to our Spiegel Religious School
  • $43,000 in utilities and $26,500 in insurance
  • $158,000 in building operations.

In all, to operate it costs Beth El close to $2,400 yearly for each family unit of membership.

Currently, only half of our congregation participates in this important appeal.  If you’ve given in the past, we thank you and ask you to consider increasing your pledge.  I f you haven’t given in the past, now is the time to invest in Beth El.

We put the money you donate to work. As we have for may years, we invest a portion of the donated funds in 2-year Israeli Bonds. When the bonds mature, the principal and accursed interest will be applied to operations and programming.  By donating to Beth El, you support both Beth El and Israel with one donation.

Please complete the online form below or turn down a tab during the Yom Kippur Appeal. Thank you once again.  On behalf our your fellow Congregants, we appreciate your continued support.
