This year, we will have extraordinary opportunities to join together as one kehillah, one community, and to look to the future of TBE life. We are blessed to be part of a financially sound congregation and are grateful to have the resources available to support our congregation within our new space. Philanthropic giving strengthens our community and creates boundless opportunities for our growing congregation to connect to Jewish life.
TBE’s Annual Appeal giving remains the backbone of a strong financial base for our congregation. While dues and tuition help pay for much of the cost to run the temple, we also rely on philanthropic annual gifts from TBE congregants. These gifts allow us to provide innovative programming and engagement opportunities for our congregation, while also enabling TBE to have a positive impact on the broader Jewish community.
A contribution to the Annual Appeal is one of the most important gifts you can make to our temple.
Did you know?
- 25% of members or approximately 250 families receive an abatement;
- 150 children are served in our special education religious school program;
- Only 80% of TBE’s budget is covered by dues and tuition;
- This past year, TBE hosted 5 programs in support of Israel that brought together more than 1,200 people.
We hope you will join us in securing our financial future. Join us on our journey to 100% community participation in our temple’s Annual Appeal.
