WE THANK YOU FOR YOUR GIFT.

Congregation B'nai Israel accepts contributions made in honor of birthdays, Bar or Bat Mitzvah, weddings, anniversaries, events marking varied achievements, or to memorialize individuals.

We welcome all contributions; however, only those of $10.00 or more per honoree/memorial will be acknowledged to the person in whose honor (or the family of the person in whose memory) the contribution is made. Your contribution will also be acknowledged in the Temple bulletin. For further information, contact the office at (203) 336-1858.

Note: An administrative fee of fifteen percent, up to a maximum amount of $75, is deducted from all Special Purpose Fund contributions. This fee defrays the cost of processing the contribution and is added to the synagogue's operating budget.
