The synagogue has several fundraisers throughout the year.

  • Wall of Honor. Our annual Wall of Honor High Holiday appeal is an important way to support the synagogue, providing important funding for programming and congregants in need throughout the year.
  • Journal Dinner. Each year we honor a guest of honor and key volunteers. That journal becomes a book of record wherein we congratulate those honorees for their service to the shul and demonstrate our support for our Jewish community.

We also have opportunities for supporters of the synagogue who wish to provide a permanent gift to the shul. These gifts can also provide grantors with significant tax and estate planning benefits.

The synagogue has a number of funds that allow you to make a targeted gift to us. To learn more about our funds, call Bonnie Komito at 732-536-2300 x101. Below is some additional information about the Temple Funds and how they are used.
