High Holy Day Pledge: We hope you will consider investing at this pivotal time in our temple’s story. We begin a new chapter, building upon our successes, and, venturing out in new ways. It is an opportunity for each of us to be partners in supporting our community center.

To that end, we are asking that you answer this appeal in the affirmative as so many have done in the past. If you are able, we ask you to consider a monthly pledge offering for the next ten months.

Annual Social Action Drive: Each Rosh Hashanah our congregation is asked to take a bag and fill it with goods for our High Holy Day Social Action Drive. This year, we start a new tradition of giving all year long. For information and how to support Second Harvest of the Big Bend, Elder Care Services and Hope Community Center.
