Thank you to all who made this season a Tzedakah Summer!

Tzedakah logo for web v2

This summer, in honor of the Beth Emet Tzedakah Fund’s anniversary on June 1, an anonymous supporter graciously donated $18 to the Beth Emet Tzedakah Fund in the name of each of the first 54 congregants (of any age) who volunteered at least one hour or more of service to any nonprofit social service agency between June 1 and August 31. The campaign was such a success, additional anoymous donors joined together to grant an additional 18 congregants raising a possible total of $1296 for the Tzedakah Fund. There are nine spots left--email Paul Fields  with the name of the organization where you volunteerd by August 31.
