Please assist B’nai Sholom Reform Congregationto raise additional funds.

The following articles describe ways to help B’nai Sholom; many are ways to raise funds without you spending anything additional. 

In addition, check out the ways direct donations can be made to the B’nai Sholom Reform Congregation.

It couldn’t be simpler: you can raise money for B’nai Sholom just by doing your weekly grocery shopping. Hannaford and ShopRite pledge 5% back on pre-loaded shopping cards you purchase through the Synagogue. That’s right: without spending an extra cent, you can donate to B’nai Sholom. Just purchase the cards through the fundraising committee, and then use your card like cash at Hannaford and ShopRite. The cards — available in multiples of $25, $50 or $100 — can be purchased just by sending a check to B’nai Sholom. They make terrific gifts, too. For information, contact Ellie Davis ( ). The sooner you start using the cards, the more you’ll be helping B’nai Sholom.

Purim is a day of taking and giving pleasure. For years, we have rejoiced in our deliverance from Haman through the mitzvot of Tzedakah and Mishloah Manot: Tzedakah is performed by donating food or money and Mishloah Manot by sending sweet treats to friends. Once again, BSRC will provide congregants the opportunity to fulfill both of these mitzvot.

The Fundraising Committee’s bakers will be producing dozens of yummy Hamentaschen cookies, which will be combined with fruit juice, fruits, nuts, candy, and other treats in festive gift bags. Every congregant family will receive one gift basket, but all congregants will have the opportunity to sponsor these baskets as a way of sending a personal holiday message and gift. You can honor your fellow B’nai Sholom friends and support the congregation’s fundraising efforts while participating in this wonderful tradition
