Support Beth El on Giving Tuesday (December 3rd, 2019)
Give the gift of #ExtraordinaryMoments
What (and when) is Giving Tuesday?
#GivingTuesday (December 3rd, 2019) is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration. Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving (in the U.S.) and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many choose to use the holiday season as an opportunity for end-of-year giving.
We know several charities and non-profits are deserving of your support at this time of year. As you consider your year-end giving, we hope you’ll remember the impact Beth El has had on your life and consider making a donation in honor of #GivingTuesday to Beth El.
Why support Beth El on Giving Tuesday?
Because our vibrant Beth El community thrives on the continuous generosity of members like you. A donation on #GivingTuesday makes everyday miracles happen at Beth El that are otherwise not financed by money raised in the Annual Appeal. Your gift on #GivingTuesday helps sustain a culture of life-changing Jewish moments, like these:
- Nurturing the next generation of Jewish leaders by sending religious school students to Israel and Israeli advocacy conferences, like the AIPAC Policy Conference.
- Easing the suffering of those grieving or in need of healing by helping Rabbi Saroken organize the Healing Service, a supportive and confidential gathering.
- Championing a lifetime of Jewish learning by sponsoring an Adult Education classes, as well as inviting guests to experience our vibrant learning community.
Celebrate and Support Transformative Jewish Moments
One of the best ways to get involved on Giving Tuesday is in your own community. In 2018, three members of our Beth El community shared their #ExtraordinaryMoments with you:
- Heather Michaelson saw the world with new eyes after becoming a Jew in Beth El’s Mikveh.
- Joe Napora became a Bar Mitzvah at 86-years old, proving it’s never too late to embrace Torah values.
- Hulane Zolet received the best medicine possible while recovering from surgery: a visit from Beth El’s “dream team” clergy.
