Annual Fundraiser

Join in and help us raise essential funds for our congregation

Each year, we run an annual campaign asking for donations to Or Haneshamah. While our members already contribute generously through their membership costs, many people don’t realize that membership renewal only covers about half of our yearly expenses. As a small synagogue largely run by volunteers, every donation counts. The annual fundraising campaign is the reason we are able to provide such excellent programming all year round. With your help, we can continue to do what we love as we delve back into the world of in-person events and celebrations. We appreciate each and every one of you, and we thank you for supporting this wonderful community.
