Did you know that our B3 Collaborative Sunday School has over 40 students and our Hebrew school of 7 students is growing? With an expanding school comes expanding costs, and we are working hard to balance our gelt and resources with these expenses. As a Hanukkah present for the future of our children, I ask you to consider a gift of support to our school. As a shamash/leader, each of us can make a big difference in lighting up the Jewish lives of our students with the most important gift:
A Jewish education that is engaging, meaningful and fun.
For each of the 8 days, please consider a daily gift of your choice:
$18.00 x 8 = $144.00
$36.00 x 8 = $288.00
$54.00 x 8 = $432.00
$100.00 x 8 = $800.00
Our Goal this year is to raise $8,000. Pledges can be made by contacting Shais via phone, email, or just leaving a note in the tzedakah box in our lobby. Donations can be made by check, credit card or by Paypal through our website, http://www.be-sf.org.
During Hanukkah you will receive an email from me prior to each night’s candle lighting. Your message will include a teaching that will brighten your Hanukkah presence as you gather around the light of your hanukkiah this year.
The countdown to Hanukkah has already begun. We are 2 nights away. Make sure to get your pledge to Shais before we celebrate the first night.
Thank you for your support!
Wishing you and yours a Hag Urim Sameach, a very light-filled and Happy Hanukkah!
Your Rabbi & Education Director,
Rabbi Mark Melamut
