Sponsor a Kiddush Print E-mail

In response to the heightened interest in Kiddush sponsorship that we are now seeing, we have decided to spice things up a little by offering more of a selection, hopefully providing a little more diversity.

Please see below for a list of upcoming kiddushim. To sponsor a kiddush please email This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it or log on to our website. The full menus are available and all shul donations can be made online as well.

Shaare Tefillah Benevolent Society Print E-mail

The past twelve months for our shul have been some of the most eventful and wonderful in our shul’s history. Most of the events were all focused around our move into Claremont place. Many of our “firsts” included davening in our own shul on the Yamin Noraim, conducting HaKafot inside the sanctuary, Trivia night in our own social hall, our very own Megillah reading and Chagigah on Eruv Purim, in addition to the Bar Mitzvot that we’ve been fortunate to celebrate. We now boast more minyanim, increased youth events and shiurim, and seem to greet new members virtually every week. It is with this amazing growth and transformation that we kick off a new program for our members, one with a more serious tone.

Yizkor Appeal Print E-mail

Yom Kippur 5775

Dear Friends -

As we reach our two-year anniversary in our new home it is a perfect time to reflect on what an incredible year it has been. But as we look back we must also be planning ahead - we must ensure Shaare Tefillah is fiscally sound in order to provide for our short-term, mid-term and long-term Judaic needs.

I kindly ask that you take a few minutes to read the attached important letter regarding Shaare Tefillah's 2014 annual Yom Kippur Yizkor appeal, and help ensure the future of Shaare Tefillah is as bright as this past year has been.

Appeal cards will be available for both men and women on Yom Kippur day. Pledges can also be made in advance via Shaare Tefillah's website or mail.

Thank you and a ketiva v'chatima tova,
