Yom Kippur Yizkor Appeal

Dear Members and Friends,

In Parshat Terumah, we read the well-known verse “v’asu li mikdash v’shachanti b’tocham” – “build for Me a temple and I will dwell in them.” Many commentators note the textual anomaly of “b’tocham – in them” as opposed to “b’tocho – in it” to allude to the concept that Hashem dwells not only in the Beit HaMikdash, but also in all synagogues built throughout Jewish communities.   

We are all fortunate to have Shaare Tefillah as our warm, inviting and multi-faceted mikdash me’at. This year, our Yom Kippur appeal is multi-faceted as well. Firstly, as in years past, our Yom Kippur appeal will be focused on growing our funds for shul operations to ensure we can continue the quality of services and programming that our shul provides.

We will also be launching a refresh of our Capital Campaign dedication opportunities in conjunction with the 2018 Yom Kippur Appeal. We have numerous items at all sponsorship levels that can be dedicated to Shaare Tefillah to help ensure the shul’s continued growth and success in the future. We ask our members to not only consider a sponsorship individually, but to also consider parents and family members who may be interested in a dedication opportunity. To view the dedication opportunities, please click here.

Our annual appeal is a critical component of our fiscal budget – we humbly ask everybody who attends Shaare Tefillah, whether regularly or occasionally, to participate in this year’s appeal. Our goal for the appeal this year is 100% participation – regardless of the size of donation, ish v’isha k’matnat yado v’yadah. Your generous participation is even more crucial this year given the fiscal uncertainty Shaare Tefillah faces as we continue to search for a new tenant.

Contributions can be mailed to the shul or can be made online via credit card using the form below. 

On behalf of the Board of Directors and the entire Shaare Tefillah community, we thank you for your generosity and continued support and wish you and your families a happy, healthy, and prosperous New Year and a g’mar chatima tova!
