Throughout our long history, Temple Emanuel has benefited from the genenerous support of members and friends. Dues and fees cover only a portion of the temple’s actual operating costs. Philanthropy plays an essential role in the financial foundation of our congregation. Through your tax-deductible gift to Temple Emanuel, you can celebrate life-cycle milestones, honor a loved one, help ensure that we meet the ever-changing needs of our community and demonstrate your commitment to our temple. We invite you to direct your support to an area of meaning to you. Gifts at every level make a difference. All donations are recognized in our donor newsletter, the monthly Todah.
