We are philanthropists.
We actively serve Temple Israel and our Jewish community through thoughtful fundraising.

We are leaders.
We run social and educational programming, community service events, and play a major role in the vision of the synagogue.

Each recipient will receive a beautiful box of hamentashen, baked goods & other treats along with a lovely note including a list of those who have donated toward their gift.

Great way to thank those who work with your children & Temple and let family & friends know you are thinking of them at Purim! Choose the level of Participation that works for you.
