Giving Societies

Annual gifts to Congregation B'nai Torah allow us to sustain our beloved community and positively impact the lives of thousands of Jews each year.

The Shomrei Torah and Sefer Torah societies were founded to ensure that Congregation B'nai Torah has the funds to serve our community without turning away the almost 30% who cannot afford full dues due to financial need. These generous gifts also ensure our financial stability in changing times. Our goal is to raise $290,000 towards these goals.

Besides the nachas of knowing that you are helping your fellow congregants and doing your part to ensure B'nai Torah's financial security, all participants in both giving societies will be honored on a plaque and invited to exclusive events. Sefer Torah Society donors will receive additional benefits as listed below.
