Support Temple Beth Israel

A donation to Temple Beth Israel is a wonderfully appropriate way to celebrate a life cycle event, to honor or commemorate the life of a loved one, or simply to acknowledge and express appreciation for the benefits Temple Beth Israel brings to your life. Our synagogue has a variety of Tribute and Donation Funds providing ways to support the congregation at all different levels. Members can dedicate a leaf on the Tree of Life, a Yahrzeit Memorial Plaque,  a prayer book or donate to support enrichment in our community.
