Ways to Give

Mekor Shalom appreciates each person's decision to support the efforts of this sacred community of sacred relationships.
The synagogue values highly all contributions, be they in-kind, volunteer hours, or financial.  
Of course, the presence of each person is what matters most of all.

Charitable contributions are customarily made on a number of occasions including:
  • In honor of or to express appreciation to someone
  • To celebrate a birth, naming ceremony, brit milah (ritual circumcision), birthday, bar/bat mitzvah, graduation, wedding, or anniversary 
  • To send good thoughts and/or recovery wishes
  • In memory of one who has recently died or on the occasion of a yahrzeit (anniversary of a death) 
Because the numerical equivalent of chai, the Hebrew word for life, is 18, donations are often made in multiples of $18.  
Mekor Shalom is honored to accept contributions for: 
  • A Voluntary Financial Commitment An annual membership contribution from each member household.
  • The Leaf-By-Leaf Project: With each $36 contribution to the Leaf-By-Leaf Project, a leaf is added to the Ark curtain.
  • The Hazzan's Discretionary Fund:  Under the Hazzan's direction, contributions support charitable causes, synagogue projects and programs which require funding, scholarships, and occasional assistance for members in need.
  • The Mekor Shalom Fund:  Contributions provide support for Mekor Shalom's general operating expenses.
  • The Security Enhancement Fund:  Contributions go toward augmenting the congregation's security efforts.
  • The Torah Scroll Fund Contributions support maintenance of Mekor Shalom's Torah scrolls and ritual items and may, in the future, go toward the purchase of an additional Torah scroll.
  • The Youth Fund Contributions support programming and projects benefiting the youth of Mekor Shalom.
