Pe$achAppeal 2021

Hello Beth Shalom –


Well, it is that time of year again…our 2nd Passover during this crazy COVID-19 pandemic.  Now, with vaccines becoming commonplace, we are seeing the light at the end of the tunnel (or in Passover terms…a path to safely cross the Red Sea😊)!  With the gradual return to a somewhat normal world brings hope and excitement.  Throughout all the chaos and changes this past year, Beth Shalom has worked hard to be here to Connect, Engage and Inspire each of you in the best way we could.


However, we still need your support during our 10-day Pe$achAppeal.  With each day of the campaign representing one of the 10 Plagues, the sooner you donate, the sooner you will be rid of your 2021 Plagues!  Giving is easy by clicking the link below or by calling the Beth Shalom office.  Our hope is that everyone will support the shul at one of the various levels.  Each giving level below has a significance and connection to you; so, support your kehillah today and feel good about it!
