Dues and fees pay for only a portion of the actual cost of running our Temple.
Your annual giving to the TBE Fund helps support all that we do as a congregation - providing us with extroardinary clergy; sustaining our world-class learning programs for children of all ages and enriching TBE's innovative social, cultural, and educational programs for adults and families; maintaining our magnificent Sanctuary and supporting families experiencing economic challenges who wish to retain their membership. The financial model that sustains the Temple's operation depends on three primary sources of revenue: membership dues, fees and the philanthropy of our congregants through the TBE Fund. Your annual support is a critical element of our financial strength - the participation of all congregants creates opportunity to invest togehter, as one community.
Our Jewish tradition reminds us to embrace the joy of living, each and every day. Through prayer, learning, and reaching out to others, we experience the true holiness of life. Of course, this can only be realized with the collective support of our congregation. I am so grateful for the generosity of so many of our Temple members who enable our community to build the leaders of tomorrow and improve our world.
