2023 Yom Kippur Appeal
Continuing Our Investment in the Future of Adat Shalom Synagogue
Dear Adat Shalom Members,
Your contributions to the Adat Shalom Yom Kippur appeal have helped our congregation thrive over the years. We are grateful for your caring about our community and your generous financial support.
One year we purchased new comfortable chairs, another, the Siddur Lev Shalem, and another fixed the roof (no more leaks) above our beautiful sanctuary. Just last year, we set our sights on funding an outdoor structure, a “prayground” with enhanced landscaping, to provide a shaded space for services and other gatherings, all to be enjoyed for many years to come. After much research we are happy to report we are ready to begin building our new outdoor shelter.
For our 5784 Yom Kippur Appeal, we are committed to updating our restrooms. Some are the original spaces that show their age. Others were updated many years ago and need a facelift. As with any space in the building, the restrooms need to be modernized.
Built in 1972, our over fifty-year-old structure needs repairs and updates. Enhancing the inside and outside of our building and keeping it esthetically pleasing is integral to maintaining a space that attracts people to return time and again. We gather for Shabbat and weekday services, religious school, incredible concerts, and extraordinary learning opportunities. We want our congregants to have their simchas here and we want to continue housing community events as well.
We strongly encourage you to be a part of guaranteeing our future by making a meaningful monetary contribution toward this year’s Yom Kippur Appeal. Thank you for your consideration.
May this season enrich our lives as we renew our commitment to Adat Shalom and its future. We wish you a Shanah Tovah, and a year of joy, fulfillment, and peace.
