Reciprocity for Members
Many may not be aware that member dues, school tuition, and building fund combined cover only a portion of our synagogue's operating expenses. We must rely on fundraising activities – and primarily, our annual appeals such as the Kol Nidre Appealin order to maintain the programming and services which all of us have come to enjoy.
The success or failure of the Kol Nidre Appeal relies on you. BCRC has about 135 member families, and many more who participate in our services and events but whom have not yet taken the step of membership. We're hoping that each of you who count BCRC as part of your lives - members and guests alike - will raise your hand and contribute, no matter the amount - $5,000, $500, $50. Obviously, the more you can give, the more it helps, but whatever you can provide is appreciated. We are hoping to stand before our congregation at our Annual Meeting and report not the amount of money raised, but also that all of us contributed and participated in this annual tradition - that 100% of our incredible community cared enough about BCRC to stand and be counted. Our goal is to raise $75,000 – please help however you can.
Of course, if you have already made your Kol Nidre donation separately, please accept our special thanks for your generosity and your commitment.
As we prepare for the High Holy Days, we wish you Shanah Tovah and a year filled with health, happiness and peace. We look forward to being together as a community during this special time of renewal and reflection.
