          Kol Nidre Appeal 5778

Thank you very much to all of you who already have contributed so generously to our Kol Nidre Appeal!

 
To those of you who have not yet contributed, we kindly request that you give strong consideration to making your pledge prior to Sukkot. Pledges can be paid out over the coming 11 months. We really want 100% participation from our membership. For some that means $36, for some that means $180 or $360, for others it means $1,000, and for others it means $1,800 or significantly more. We understand everyone has their own set of financial circumstances, and members give in a variety of different ways. We appreciate each and every donation.
 
Our shul relies upon this particular appeal for a significant portion of our annual operating budget.  This is our second home and the shul is very important to all of us.  We have this beautiful space, and we need your continued financial support.
