Chai Contributions

There are times that you might like to honor a special occasion (b’nai mitzvah, wedding, etc.), remember a deceased friend or relative, or wish someone a speedy recovery. May we suggest sending a tribute or donation to Temple Beth Torah in honor of that special occasion, in memory of that special person, or as a get well wish.

Contributions are gratefully accepted in any amount but consider a Chai Contribution in an increment of $18*.  Gifts will automatically be directed to the General Fund.

 starofdavidsmall Chai means “living” and has the numerical value of 18.

 When you make a Chai Contribution honoring a simcha, offering appreciation or good wishes, or remembering a deceased friend or relative, your gift will be acknowledged as well as mentioned in the TBT Newsletter. An acknowledgement will also be sent to the recipient family, if applicable.
