Blessed are you, Adonai our God, Ruler of the Universe who commands us to take care of the community.
Let your tzedakah support Emanuel Congregation
Happy 140th Anniversary!
As we near the end of our 140th Year, we seek to raise $200,000 by the end of our fiscal (June 30, 2021).
We are in the midst of our year end appeal and are participating in #GivingTuesday for the first time.
Emanuel membership dues do not cover the full cost of serving our community, and, during this pandemic, we will rely on our endowment more heavily than ever. We look to you, our members, neighbors, friends and family, to support our congregation through our Fund For Good.
Please join us and consider making a gift of $140 or more.
The good news for our members, friends, family, and extended community is that the CARES Act will favorably impact your charitable deductions through December 31, 2020 – even if you do not itemize! To learn more about the CARES Act, click HERE.
Fund For Emanuel
The Fund for Emanuel is an unrestricted fund. For example, it is not designated for (restricted to) building repairs, travel and transportation, and/or library books.
The Fund for Emanuel is used where funds are needed most. It supports virtual programming during this pandemic including our growing youth group and teen programming, online speaker series and study groups, social justice initiatives, High Holy Day production, upcoming virtual Share Shabbat, and so much more.
It opens our doors, real and virtual, to all who seek richer, more meaningful lives.
Emanuel Congregation is your neighborhood congregation, wherever you live, and we are grateful you are here.
Please support Emanuel with a gift to our Fund for Emanuel.
Thank you & Todah Rabah
