Bet Mishpachah Funds
You can designate your contribution to the general operating fund or one of the specialty funds described below.
Covers day to day operating expenses throughout the year. Annual dues and most donations go into this fund.
Established so that we would be able to someday invest in a “place of our own.” As we continue to grow, our future housing needs will initially be covered by this fund. Until we have our home, this fund is used to pay the costs of making our rental space more comfortable and to meet our current space needs.
Ritual Objects Fund
Supports the acquisition and repair of religious and ritual objects. Our Torah and the development of our Siddur and High Holy Day Machzor have been paid for by this fund.
David Green Memorial Special Projects Fund
Supports special projects not covered by our operating budget.
Richard A. Kopely Emergency Assistance Fund
Provides short-term, emergency financial assistance to people in need, through small grants or loans. The Rabbi and the President of the Congregation are responsible for deciding who will receive money from this fund.
Richard Krampf Memorial Social Action Fund
Funds are used to augment contributions of the Social Action Committee, which has included food drives, clothing drives, community service days, and financial support to Jewish and Gay/Lesbian/Bi/Trans organizations. The fund will help Bet Mishpachah continue its support to these and many other social action activities.
Monica Lobo Filho Baruch Memorial Fund for Visiting Artists and Scholars
Dedicated to enriching the Congregation’s cultural life by providing a source of support for a visiting artists and scholars program.
