GENEROUS DONORS PROVIDE FREE HIGH HOLY DAY TICKETS FOR ALL!
September 8, 2016 - "When I first came to The Community Synagogue I had almost nothing, but this congregation opened its arms and allowed me a place to pray - especially when I needed it most - during the Days of Awe. Now, I have been blessed and things are better, so I would like to give back so others going through hard times financially can be in our spiritual home." Anonymous Congregant
The vision and generosity of two congregants - both who wish to remain anonymous - will allow us to once again offer High Holy Day tickets for FREE for this year to guests of members as well as those who are not members of the synagogue.
For the past 64 years (other than last year) we are proud that we were able to offer worship services over the Days of Awe free to all who wished to be at The Community Synagogue. That openness inspired our lead donors and allowed them to feel welcome here in a time of need ... as it may have helped you.
