How to Donate

Since 2000, more than $4 million has been pledged toward the new building project, to pay for site work and building the shell. In addition, we raised $1,077,404 in our Million$Match campaign -- an anonymous donor will match it with another $1 million -- which should allow us to complete the main floor of the building and gain occupancy. Now that we know we'll be able to continue construction, let's keep up the cash flow to finish out the school and interior furnishings!

To learn more about the new building, how you can make a pledge or to take a tour of the building site, contact:

David Goldman, Capital Campaign chair, (360) 739-1490 or

Warren Rosenthal, New Synagogue Task Force chair, (360) 961-9772 

In addition to your pledge, you may participate in creating our Legacy Path to the Future. Consider buying a brick to commemorate a bar or bat mitzvah!
