Congregants often question the best way to honor life cycle events and/or indicate their gratitude toward the Clergy for their participation in those rites of passage.
Please Note: If you would like to make a donation to one of the clergy's discretionary funds, please make checks payable directly to the individual fund. Separate checks, please.

These funds support charitable projects both within and outside of Temple Beth Torah.
