With the New Synagogue Project in the final stage of construction needed for occupancy, big bills keep arriving in our mailbox, so we are also continuing to fund raise. The immediate goal is to bring in $750,000 by December 31, 2017. Of that, $489,000 already has been received from first-time and repeat donors. Just $261,000 to go!
   Please remember the CBI New Synagogue Fund as you complete your charitable giving for 2017. All help is greatly appreciated -- it adds up fast when we all pitch in!!

Message from Capital Campaign

As the Capital Campaign is diligently working to raise funds to complete our New Synagogue, we want to extend a heartfelt "THANK YOU" to all those who have made donations and who are paying their pledges toward this monumental undertaking.   

Funding this magnificent project predominantly falls on the Beth Israel membership, rather than outside gifts or grants, so the Capital Campaign continues its work of updating the Beth Israel community on the building's progress and soliciting greater participation in its financing.  We do have a ways to go, but for a small congregation we have accomplished a great deal.  

While the stated goal is to keep the construction going, an added bonus of the Campaign effort is getting to know each other along the way.  After all, we are building a community as well as a New Synagogue!
