Our Story, Our Time
Capital Campaign Update
The campaign and renovation planning continues to make significant strides! More than $3.753 million has been raised from 120 donors during our “quiet phase” of this historic initiative. And this spring, we look forward to sharing how every member of the Beth El community can play an important role in helping us reach our renovation goals to make our shul even more welcoming, accessible, safe, and secure.
Please mark May 21st on your calendars for the Beth El Annual Meeting, followed by Our Story, Our Time festivities that will include food, drink, and activities to celebrate our individual and collective stories that have made Beth El the community we all cherish. At this event, we’ll also provide updates and invite questions regarding campaign and building planning progress, and we’ll invite all remaining members of the community to consider how they too can support this transformational project. More details on this celebration will be forthcoming in the following weeks.
As we’ve shared in previous updates, we are so appreciative of the early and significant support for this campaign that has encouraged us to explore enhancing our original renovation plans. At its February meeting, based on campaign progress and remaining projected support, the Beth El Board unanimously approved increasing the campaign goal from $4.1 million to $5.5 million to accommodate important additional elements recommended by Beth El members over several years of strategic planning.
We and other leaders of this campaign effort look forward to exploring with many more of you in the coming months how you can help make these renovation plans a reality – enhancing our synagogue to clearly express who we are and what we aspire to be!
