Matzah Appeal 5778


Setting an Extra Place at the Table

In the Jewish tradition of Abraham and Sarah welcoming guests in their home, Jews have been placing extra seats at seder tables for generations.  At Beth Shalom we always have room for more. Whether it is a seat for kiddush lunch, a sanctuary pew to say kaddish, a comfortable sofa in the youth lounge for Jewish teens, or a tiny chair in the Alef Bet preschool, everyone is welcome to join and take their place at the table.

These places are supported by the shul budget which depends on generous donations from our congregants. The Matz-Appeal comes at a midway point in our fiscal year and this campaign gives the budget a much-needed boost.

Your donation to the Matz-Appeal helps pay for annual operating expenses and also provides funds for future needs such as upgrading the HVAC and replacing the worn out chairs in the social hall.

As we prepare for our seder, we humbly remember that we were once strangers in a strange land and someone pulled up an extra seat for us.

Chag Sameach,

Carolann Reiter, VP Development
