Mitzvah Match Challenge

The $13,300 Mitzvah Match Challenge; Every Dollar you Donate is Doubled!!


Dear Friends,

Next spring will mark the Havurah’s 30th year as a synagogue, and this year is Rabbi David’s 20th year as the Havurah’s rabbi. Wow!

Over the years the Havurah has hosted hundreds of baby namings, bar/bat mitzvahs, weddings, memorials, and funerals; hundreds of concerts and cultural events; thousands of adult education classes; and innumerable Shabbat and holiday services. There is also the spiritual work that our synagogue has done in helping tens of thousands of people over the years to have a deeper and more personal connection to G-d and Yiddishkeit. We’ve offered a joyous approach to Judaism to all the people (Jewish and non-Jewish alike) who have joined us at our rituals and celebrations.

Today our Challenge Donors, the members and friends listed below,  are presenting you with another opportunity to make a difference for the Havurah community. Every dollar you donate with be doubled because of their generosity! Dollar for dollar!! Instead of having an auction with a “Mitzvah Moment” this year we’re having a Mitzvah Matching Campaign. These members and friends of the Havurah, who are committed to our future, have pledged a grand total of $13, 300 as a challenge for the rest of us to match. In Hebrew the numerical value of the number “13” is LOVE. Won’t you show your love for the Havurah this season?
