Tzedakah is the great Jewish tradition of contributing from individual resources toward the good of the whole community. Rabbinic teaching informs us that the construction of the Temple was not completed until everyone had contributed to the effort, and that the very strength of the community was dependent upon the good will and donations of each and every one of our ancestors. At Temple Shir Tikva, we honor that tradition, and treasure each and every gift to strengthen our sacred Jewish community. Whether you choose to remember family, friends or others for the kindness they have shown, celebrate special occasions, or memorialize a special individual, your contribution allows us to:

  • Support Temple Shir Tikva’s mission and commitment to excellence
  • Provide inspiring and spiritual opportunities for worship
  • Offer innovative educational programming for all ages
  • Maintain connection, caring and help to those in need
  • Foster our commitment to tikkun olam, repairing the world
  • Strengthen our ties to Israel and the greater Jewish community
  • Welcome all who desire to join our community, regardless of ability to pay

Clergy Funds

The clergy funds provide assistance to individuals and projects as determined by the Rabbis and Cantor. 

Endowment Fund

The Endowment Fund provides income for future plans and needs through investment. The principal remains intact and only a portion of the accrued earnings are spent each year for unrestricted general purposes or for specific purposes as designated by donors within the mission of the Temple. The Endowment Fund allows us the financial security to plan for expenditures outside the scope of our regular annual budget in order to build the future of Temple Shir Tikva with confidence.
