Tribute Funds

Traditionally, many congregants like to make tribute gifts, in honor of or in memory of a loved one or to mark a special event. The minimum donation is $18 which includes recognition in our synagogue newsletter and a tribute card to the recipient. If you do not wish to send a tribute card, the minimum donation is $15.
