A member comments, "The temple feels like family to us - a place that has so much to offer to so many. We want to be sure we support it both with time and financially, to the extent we are able. It feels good to contribute."
There are many ways to express your memories of loved ones, good wishes to special people on special occasions, and your own personal interests, inspirations, appreciation, and commitment. Consider:
When we gather in our sanctuary to pray, to learn and chant from Torah, and to share our lives in sacred community, we are surrounded by beautiful ritual objects. It is a long-standing tradition to invite members of the congregation to dedicate these objects in memory of a loved one or in honor of a special person of occasion.
Such dedications are meaningful, lasting tributes. They provide a personal connection to our heritage and important support for the synagogue's mission of inspiration. Consider the opportunities in this leaflet: Sanctuary Judaica Dedication Opportunities
It is said that God created the world but did not complete it - we are to partner with God as we care for the earth's resources, creatures, and each other - we are to make our world whole, complete, beautiful.
This endeavor is tikkun olam, repair of the world. Each fall and spring, the Shaaray Tefila community focuses on social action for a community-wide Mitzvah Sunday. Here's our Fall Mitzvah Day Brochure - participate & do consider becoming a sponsor, as an individual, family, or business. It's a most meaningful opportunity to honor a special person or occasion, or memorialize a loved one.

Our Donor Recognition Plaque in our Temple Lobby reads,
"Let Us Give Strength to Each Other."
Remember Shaaray Tefila in your will.
