We hope that each member's affiliation with Beth Shalom brings fulfillment, joy and lasting friendships through prayer, community, study and social action. To successfully perform our mission, each of us must contribute financial support at an appropriate level. The vast majority of our congregants contribute at the Minimum Annual Commitment level established by the Board. It is through member generosity that Beth Shalom will continue to prosper. Thank you.

But in order to meet our budget and sustain programs and operations, we rely on members to contribute generously beyond the basic giving levels as much as possible. Three years ago, we created Honor Circles of Annual Giving Donations to encourage those who could give significantly more to do so. So far this year, 24 families met the donation levels to qualify for an Honor Circle in 2019-20. 

Your Board is trying to do an even better job at publicly and privately recognizing those individuals and families who give of their time, talent and treasure to Beth Shalom. By including their names in this post, we are trying to publicly recognize those who have given treasure at levels that qualify for Honor Circles. Once we're using the building again, you will also see their names displayed on a placard in the lobby area. We will be honoring them at a special Shabbat service and, depending on what COVID-19 has in store, inviting them to a special event hosted by the Rabbi and the President. Based on the Honor Circle level, the donors will also be thanked with special incentives as were described in an issue of the L'Chayim earlier this year.

The 2019-20 Honor Circles donors are:

Sally and Hal Zenick
Sue and Steve Weitzman
Beth and Max Nathison
Jody and William Frank
Julia and Ken Lerche
Elana Scheiner and Michael Marino
Gloria and Shelly Welstein
Lynn and Mark Albert
Karen Albright and Doug Kadan
Paula and Greg Bennett
Amy and Bill Dvorak
Stephanie and Pete Early
