Pesach Yizkor Appeal 5775
On Acharon Shel Pesach, Shabbat April 11th, those of us who need to will be saying Yizkor. This year again we would like your support for the appeal in advance of the holiday. We would like to strive for 100% participation from our members.
We recognize that there are many other worthy organizations requesting donations at this time of year. But our shul – for all that it means to each and every one of us – still requires substantial funding for its day to day operations, and the Pesach appeal is one of the primary fundraising efforts in which the shul engages to be able to meet these obligations. As many people are away for this Yom Tov this advanced appeal affords the opportunity to provide your donations now. Even if you B"H do not need to say Yizkor it is an excellent time to make a donation in gratitude to all that you have.
We hope that you will continue to make Shomrei Torah a priority in your charitable giving. As this appeal is a main fundraising effort for the shul, we ask that you respond as generously as you can. Our primary objective for these appeals is 100% participation, at whatever level you feel comfortable. Please make or redeem your pledge by using the form found by clicking here.
