The Need for Charitable Support

As most of our members are aware, the revenue that we raise through dues and tuition is not sufficient to sustain the temple in its mission to be a vibrant center of Jewish life for our community. In order for Temple Beth David to continue to thrive and support our community, to adequately maintain our building, and to attract new members, we need to continuously rely on the generosity of our congregants and friends.

Making donations to various Temple funds, tzedakah, is a special way to say thank you, to honor someone on a special occasion, to memorialize a loved one, or just to express gratitude for health, love and friendship. 

We appreciate all contributions. Regardless of the amount, all contributions are important and are used carefully.  

Current Challenge and a Special, Timely Opportunity

The Challenge: This year, we expect that the COVID-19 pandemic will negatively impact many of our temple members and the congregation as a whole. We anticipate that many families may struggle to pay their full dues due to illness and/or job losses. As a result, we need to support each other and sustain the temple membership even more during these unprecedented times.

The Opportunity: To directly address this challenging financial situation, several very generous temple families have recently joined together to establish the Cynthia and J. Harvey Atkins Founders Fund (Atkins Founders Fund). This fund will commemorate the 60th Anniversary of the founding of the temple, celebrate all of the original founders (including current members Cynthia and Harvey), and help congregants continue their engagement with the temple.

These generous donors will match, dollar-for-dollar, all donations (up to $65,000) to the Atkins Founders Fund that are pledged and paid by June 30, 2021, thereby doubling the impact of your gift. 


Temple Beth David, as a religious organization that meets the requirements of section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, is considered tax exempt. See IRS Publication 1828 Tax Guide for Churches and Religious Organizations.
