Like every small synagogue, we work hard to meet the needs of our members, along with our financial obligations. That's why we are especially grateful for every contribution, regardless of how small.
Many people choose to honor life cycle events or commemorate loved ones. Please consider contributing to the vision and values of Beth El Congregation.
Here are some of the available funds:
General Fund – Monies contributed here help to pay for daily operations, as well as necessary improvements.
Building Fund - Finished with Phase I of our renovation, we are excited to look ahead to Phase II updates to our sanctuary and kitchen. So contributions to this fund are most welcome!
Yahrzeit Memorial Plaques – Each bronze plaque bears the name of a deceased love one and hangs on the memorial wall display as you enter the sanctuary. These plaques, supporting the General Fund, cost $300.
Leaves on the Tree of Life - To recognize a loved one or to honor a special occasion such as b'nai mitzvah, baby-namings, or weddings, you can purchase a leaf for $90. They will become part of the Tree of Life display in the lobby.
Rabbi's Discretionary Fund - If you specify that a contribution goes to this fund, the money goes directly to the Rabbi to help him aid needy families, bring in special speakers, and further our mission.
To contribute, send a check to Beth El Congregation, 520 Fairmont Avenue, Winchester, VA 22602 ATTN: Treasurer.
Please specify if you would like the contribution to be applied to a particular fund. Otherwise, donations go into the General Fund.
