5778 High Holy Day Appeal

A message from our President, Josh Sherbin.

Dear Congregant:

I have the honor of writing this letter to you in the third year of my term as president of Temple Shir Shalom.  Together with my fellow Board members, I look forward to all of us sharing in the inspiration and reflection of the High Holidays.   

As a congregation, we are blessed to face the coming year, 5778, with the strength of a passionate clergy that we cherish, a congregation that is enthusiastic and growing, and staff and lay leadership that are devoted and caring.

We once again face the new year with opportunity. Tradition says that we are to undertake an accounting of the soul (Cheshbon Ha-Nefesh) during the High Holidays.  How can we seize this opportunity together?

In the coming year, each of us can find what captures our interest in Temple Shir Shalom and work to build an even stronger Temple family.  A critical part of strengthening our Temple community is taking care of each other and taking care of our Temple. During the High Holidays, you will have the opportunity to reach out and pledge your support to this year’s Shir Shalom High Holiday appeal.  Your generosity will make a difference – your dollars will help Temple families in need with dues and religious school fees, support our programming and social action initiatives, and help to defray Temple’s operating expenses.

Your generosity will go even further thanks to a group of Temple members who will match our total congregational pledge. We are truly blessed to have individuals who care so deeply and inspire us all to help more.

You may donate $180, $360, $720, $1,440 or an amount of your choosing.

Please make your donation here to the 5778 High Holy Day Appeal.

Or you may contact the Temple office.

As you consider your donation over the coming High Holidays, please reflect on the compassionate congregational family we are today and how we can enrich the Jewish lives of our fellow and future members as we go forward together.

A sweet, healthy and happy new year to you and your family.

Josh Sherbin
