Building Fund

 
If I am not for myself, who is for me?  And if I am only for myself, what am I?
Hillel, Pirkei Avot / Ethics of the Fathers 1:14
 

Shir Hadash is much more than an organization:  It is a congregational home.  Just like your home, our facilities need upkeep and maintenance, but this can only be done through the generous support of congregants and members of the community.

In order to preserve our congregational home and keep it secure for future generations, we must keep it on a solid financial basis.  Through the expected payment of the building fund, in addition to dues, all members of the community help achieve this goal.


If you have fulfilled your building fund commitment at Shir Hadash and/or another congregation, we will adjust your account appropriately after we receive written documentation from that synagogue.


 

If you choose to pay your Building Fund commitment all at once, you receive 20% the total.


Shir Hadash Special Funds

Shir Hadash relies on the generosity of its members to sustain our vibrant community.  Contributions can be made to honor a loved one, pay tribute to someone special, mark a special occasion or simply as support for our community.  Gifts can be targeted or unrestricted.  We appreciate the financial support of our members which allows us to be a synagogue for all and maintain the quality programming and services that have become our hallmark.
