We hope this letter finds you well and that you are enjoying the final relaxing days of summer.
As we begin to prepare for the fall and the High Holy Days, a period of great reflection, we want to express our gratitude for your membership and for making our congregation a vause Kehillah K’doshah – sacred community.
We are writing to you today as current and past Presidents of The Community Synagogue requesting your support of our annual Kol Nidrei campaign, a key revenue source for our congregation. Over the years, it has been an honor and privilege to lead our congregation. We are exceptionally proud of our sustained growth, breadth and depth of our programming and meaningful relationships formed. We remain steadfast in our commitment to and support of our congregation and are especially grateful for our incredible clergy, hardworking professional staff, dedicated lay leaders and YOU - our members - who truly make us the dynamic congregation we are today.
Unfortunately, the realities of running our synagogue are such that our Commitment to Giving revenues only cover a portion of our expenses. As such, this Kol Nidrei campaign is an important supplemental revenue source enabling us to continue delivering high quality programs and services.
It is our goal to have 100% participation in the 2017 Kol Nidrei campaign - no donation is too small and every donation is appreciated. For those blessed with the capacity to give more, we hope you will be generous and help those who cannot give as much. Regardless of the donation amount, we thank you sincerely for being a part of this important campaign as each gift makes a real difference.
L ’shana tova. May each of you be blessed with a good and healthy year.
