Tzedakah: Giving, Charity. Even though Tzedakah means giving, when you contribute to Temple Israel, it's so much more than just "giving" because of what you receive in return. You contribute to a growing, vibrant, inclusive congregation that seeks to embrace the community. You create opportunity for growth through programming, connection, and tikkun olam. You offer subsidized membership to those in need, Jewish holiday celebrations to the new-to-Judaism, and inspiring Shabbat services to all who wish to watch and participate. You give so much more than you know when you give to Temple Israel.

Celebrate a loved one, mark a simcha, commemorate a Yahrzeit or other lifecycle event in happiness or in sorrow, through a donation to one of our funds or giving opportunities shown below.
