The Beth Emet Tzedakah Committee is pleased to announce our fall tzedakah box exchange. Tzedakah Committee members will be there to accept your donations, hand out new boxes, and respond to any questions you may have about the tzedakah grant program. Contributions to our grant program may be made at any time during the year. You may drop off your donations at the west entrance during business hours or use the Lucite tzedakah boxes located near the west entrance area and in the Temple Menorah Lobby. You may also use the slot at the sanctuary entrance to deposit donations.
Donations may also be made by credit card, e-check or billed to your account. Just visit the Beth Emet Tzedakah page and click on “Donate directly to the Tzedakah Fund“. Or, you may submit a request to Debbie Gilbert, Beth Emet’s finance manager, to transfer a portion of your account credit balance to the Fund. If you prefer to donate by check, make your check payable to Beth Emet and enter “Tzedakah Fund” on the memo line.
As always, the contributions received are used exclusively to fund our grant program for the benefit of local and Israeli not-for-profits whose missions align with Beth Emet’s social justice core values of righteousness/justice, love for one’s neighbors and for the stranger. Compassion, kindness, and hospitality. For more information about the Tzedakah Grant Program, please view our Tzedakah Fund page or contact committee chair, Barry Isaacson by email or by phone (847-624-6434)
