Giving to TBAY

Temple Beth Ahm Yisrael seeks to provide a range of opportunities to sustain our connection to our rich tradition and to one another, through religious services, educational programs, weddings, B’nai Mitzvah, as well as a range of cultural and social activities for our entire community. We work tirelessly to ensure that the beauty, depth, ethics, and joy of Judaism are brought to life—not just for our members, but for all.

Show Your Support

In order to sustain our vibrant community, TBAY relies on the generosity of our members, who are committed to supporting the continuity of our Jewish traditions and values through the generations. By making TBAY a philanthropic priority in your life, you are not just sustaining your synagogue today, you are helping to ensure the strength of our welcoming model of Judaism for generations to come.

There are many ways that you can show your support and help us achieve our mission of being a warm, caring and inclusive community. For more information or to find out how you can support TBAY, please contact Executive Director Harvey M. Brenner at .

Ways to Give

Annual Appeal

The High Holy Days Annual Appeal is our annual fundraising campaign and TBAY’s main source of operating support beyond membership dues and tuition. It is only through the generosity of our members that we are able to achieve our mission, hire talented staff, provide our members with world-class programming, and uphold the highest standards of learning and worship to transform the way people experience Jewish life. Your support helps us build a future in which Jewish values and beliefs are preserved and shared.

Shop for TBAY

Gift Card Program — Purchase retail gift cards through TBAY instead of at your local grocery or convenience store! This is a no-cost way to support the Temple, while providing our members with the opportunity to get gift cards at face value. TBAY makes money because we’re able to purchase the gift cards at a discounted rate. Cards may be picked up in the Temple office, delivered to you locally ($200 minimum), or oftentimes shipped directly. Our most recent inventory is available here: tinyurl.com/TBAYInventory, but we can source cards from almost any other store where you like to make your purchases. Email for larger orders or if you have any questions.
