Annual Appeal
Rabbi Elazar ben Azariah says:

If there is no flour, there is no Torah;
if there is no Torah, there is no flour.

(Pirkei Avot 3:17)
About the Appeal

We rely on the generosity of our Shaaray Tefila community to supplement the dues and school fees that comprise the majority of our budget. Donations to our Annual Appeal enable us to attract and retain talented clergy and Jewish professionals, and to provide our entire community with meaningful programs for education, celebration, social action, and community-building. The Annual Appeal also enables us to subsidize membership for those in need of assistance so that anyone may be a part of our community no matter their financial situation. We are grateful to everyone, both within our synagogue membership and beyond our walls, who has contributed to the Annual Appeal, affirming the importance our community places on Jewish tradition, values, and continuity.
