As with all congregations, temple dues only cover a percentage of operating costs at Temple Judea. In order to offer the quality programs we seek to provide, we are dependant on generous donations of our members. Such donations are usually given to commemorate happy moments (such as birthdays, anniversaries, b'nai mitzvah, weddings) and also in order to remember loved ones who have passed away. Our donation funds promote a wide range of Temple activities and tzedakah projects, from the soup kitchen to youth programming to beautifying the Temple on the Days of Awe.
