Religious School Scholarships Fund (Betty Elins/SJ): to provide tuition assistance to students of the Religious School based upon financial need.

The Sissinwine Food Pantry Fund: to provide food for those in need.

Gottesman Scholarship Fund

Oneg and Flowers: According to the prophet Isaiah, the Sabbath shall be a delight. By having something sweet to nosh on (especially in times when food was scarce), there was delight added to Shabbat. That is the origin of the Oneg Shabbat on Friday nights and the Kiddushim on Shabbat (Saturday) morning. Lingering, talking and eating after services on Shabbat adds to the feeling of Shabbat being different from other days of the week, when we rush to get to our next thing to do. It also lets us meet, learn about, and interact with other members of the community.

Yahrzeit:  The card that you receive before the Yahrzeit of your loved one will give you the option to honor that individual with a minimum donation of $36.00 which would sponsor the flowers on the Bimah on that Shabbat and support the Oneg. Please notify the office 508-775-2988 or email your date choice and please allow a month advance notice.  Let us know if you would like to also bake.
