While membership dues and school tuition support the basic costs of maintaining our facility, it is through the generosity of our members that we are able to provide a wide range of programs, services and learning opportunities for children and adults and to welcome all members into our community regardless of their financial capacity.
We welcome and appreciate any and all additional contributions, which can be made to mark a simcha, honor the memory of a loved one or pay tribute to a leader or teacher. Below is a list of existing funds to which donations can be designated.
