Kol Nidrei Appeal
This year’s Kol Nidrei appeal was dedicated to an exciting new construction project our shul will iy"H be undertaking, with your help. We will be adding a staircase to the basement that will be safe for everyone to use in the front of the building. The staircase will lead to a larger coatroom for us to use in the winter while we reframe the basement steps in the back of the building so that it’s accessible from the women’s side/back of the shul as well. We will also reorganize the basement and frame out classrooms where we can hold extra shiurim, youth programs, as well as appropriate storage facilities for the medical and baby gemach. This will allow us to accommodate more types of programming for adults and children and will also enable us to have more than one thing going on in this building at a time.Every dollar we receive will be matched by a generous gift up to $11,000 so PLEASE give generously – not only as a זכות this יום כיפור but as we build for the future. To redeem your pledge or to make a new donation, please click here and note that your donation is for the Yom Kippur Kol Nidrei appeal.
