Please help us continue the impressive strides we've made by giving generously to this year's campaign. With matching programs from several of our synagogue families, your donations will make even more of a difference! All first-time contributions and increases over last year's gift will be matched dollar-for-dollar. Also, any gifts of $1,000 or more will result in matching gifts of $360.  As a special incentive this year, all contributions over $1,000 will entitle the giver to two (2) Reserved Seats during High Holy Days.
