Temple Beth-El relies on the financial generosity of its members to help meet its ongoing expenses and to secure its long-term financial stability. There are many different ways that you can help, ranging from small contributions in honor of a particular mitzvah or life cycle event, to larger endowment contributions or bequests. You can see a listing of Temple Beth-El Funds below. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for additional information on making gifts to Temple.
