The Congregation Beth Emeth Annual Appeal is the primary fundraising effort used to balance the financial needs of the synagogue with what is received from member dues. This campaign of voluntary giving provides the single greatest source of non-dues income, and enables Beth Emeth to continue to be a warm and welcoming full-service Conservative synagogue that's Here Today, and Here Tomorrow.
• Meet established Annual Appeal fundraising goal of $145K
• Continue to increase participation by congregants
From John and Jamie Steinberg: "To our family, Congregation Beth Emeth is more than a house of worship. It is a source of grounding, connection and belonging, as well as a special gathering place for our family. It is a source of Jewish education for us, and most importantly, our children. Beyond the physical limits of the building, CBE is the root of relationships that will last lifetimes. CBE is our spiritual home. Its members share in our happiest of simchas, and comfort us in our times of need." Jamie and John look forward to working with last year's appeal chairs, Bonnie and Glen Silas, to make this another successful campaign. If you have any questions about the appeal, its goal or even its function, John and Jamie would love to speak with you.

Tzedakah is a Hebrew word literally meaning righteousness but commonly used to signify charity. In Judaism, tzedakah refers to the religious obligation to do what is right and just, which Judaism emphasizes are important parts of living a spiritual life. Unlike philanthropy or charity, which is voluntary, tzedakah is seen as a religious obligation which all should perform. The act of tzedakah is in keeping with the Jewish value of Tikkun Olam--making the world a better place.
