Our family has been a member of Congregation Beth Israel since 1971, and Congregation Beth Israel has had an important role in our lives. It has been involved in our life cycle through the B’nai Mitzvah of our children, their weddings, and the baby naming of grandchildren. It has been the place where we could come and join other Jews to observe our religion, teach our children about Judaism and participate in Jewish activities. It has also given us the opportunity to contribute time and effort to Congregation Beth Israel as a board member and officer.

By making this gift, we are doing a little to help perpetuate the activities of Congregation Beth Israel so that families who join it in the future will have a wonderful place to pray, learn, celebrate, and express themselves as Jews.
