Gift of Tzedakah - Our 170th Anniversary

To give your gift of Tzedakah to honor our 170th Anniversary, please fill out this form. Thank you!

Our 170th Anniversary is a unique opportunity to strengthen our congregation.  Make this a year of intention to ensure that we have a flourishing community for worship, social action, and study – today and in the future!

By becoming a sponsor for the 170th Anniversary Celebration as whole, you will be investing in B’nai Israel’s well-being this year and in the years to come.  We will not make requests for additional sponsorships or individual events during this year.  Sponsors, however, can choose to underwrite specific events or projects.

We offer two sponsorships for our year-long 170th Anniversary Celebration:

  1. Give directly to our operating budget and operating reserves to support the needs of our diverse congregation
  2. Contribute to our endowment to provide sustaining income

Our loyal donors at every level are a vital source of funds to meet the essential needs of our membership.  We manage our finances prudently.  We have no debt, and we budget carefully. 

Congregation B’nai Israel belongs to all of us.  We hope that everyone will chose to participate at a level right for them. Your gift of tzedkah will make a difference.

Donors who contribute at the $1,800 level or above will receive 2 tickets each to the Gala Banquet on November 16 and Gold Rush Down & Derby on May 2.  We will acknowledge the generosity of all of our donors throughout the year.

170 years of Torah (study) Avodah (worship)
