In Judaism, charity is not merely an act of giving; it is a moral commitment of faith. Although many people believe that the Hebrew word tzedakah means charity, the word's roots convey much more - a combination of righteousness, fairness, and justice. The Rabbis of old taught that the construction of the Temple was not completed until everyone had contributed to the effort. As a result, the synagogue, the place where our people and God meet, is dependent upon the good will and donations of each and every one of us.

Contributing to Beth Emet helps to fulfill its mission of enriching and expanding the Jewish content of members’ lives through worship, study, and fellowship opportunities as well as working towards the betterment of society.

There are plenty of opportunities to give. Whether it be through our annual Mitzvah Appeal, donations to various general funds, a contribution towards our Terumah (gift) level, supporting the Beth Emet Foundation, supporting the synagogue beyond one's lifetime through the Dor L'Dor Society, or supporting one of our campaigns and collections, your support will make the difference at any level.
