Opportunities for Giving

When you make a donation to the Temple for tzedakah (charity), in honor of someone celebrating a special milestone or occasion, or out of respect and remembrance for a loved one or to express sympathy, it is a gift which pays tribute to that person and to the Temple as well. Temple Habonim has several funds which are dedicated toward funding specific activities or needed items for the congregation. You can select the fund which is most meaningful to you and make a donation which will be both a gracious gesture and help the Temple, too. We rely on the generosity of our members and friends and hope that you will consider this gift-giving opportunity the next time an occasion arises. Your donation will be listed in the Temple Bulletin and an acknowledgement sent to the recipient you designate.

Making a donation or payment has never been easier. Just review the funds below, select your desired fund and click the “Donate” button to make your contribution online via PayPal
