Help us pay for our new sanctuary
This year we are dedicated to reducing most of the debt on our beautiful new sanctuary and classrooms. This is the first new Jewish sanctuary built in the Northwest in the last fifty years, and the first entirely new Jewish Renewal sanctuary in the world. Dedicated in memory of Jackie Rose Sandler, the sanctuary has become a kind of community center in Ashland and has already hosted some extraordinary concerts, plays, peace gatherings, and interfaith events besides our regular schedule of Jewish sacred ceremonies (Shabbat and holiday services, bar and bat mitzvahs, weddings, and memorial services).
Download and fill out and mail to us the sanctuary pledge form and make a tax deductible contribution which will lead toward the elmination of debt. Every dollar we save through debt reduction is a dollar we can spend on our school, adult education programs, and our outreach efforts.
Bring in your digital cameras, laptops, ink jet cartridges (no toner cartridges please) and gold jewelry and the money we receive will fundour Garden Committee: http://www.RecyclingFundraiser.com
