Our Story, Our Time
Capital Campaign Update
We’re closing in on the $6 million Our Story, Our Time Campaign goal for renovations that will make our synagogue more welcoming, accessible, safe, and secure. As of the end of October, the Beth El community and other friends in the Durham area had generously contributed more than $5.5 million to this project. Then came some exciting news from Charlotte on October 30th…
The Leon Levine Foundation is awarding Beth El $300,000 for this Campaign! This is the Foundation’s first gift to a synagogue outside the Charlotte-Metro region. The Foundation’s staff and board commended Beth El on the vibrancy of this Jewish community, the bold scope of the renovations, and the extraordinary community generosity that inspired the Foundation to want to be a part of the project’s success!
It’s not too late for YOU to help us wrap up this Campaign! Every gift or pledge, regardless of size, will make a difference. Pledges can be paid over multiple years to help you make the greatest impact possible. And all donors, who wish to be recognized, will be honored through Campaign donor displays in the newly renovated shul.
Please contact one of us if you have questions. Thank you for helping us write the next chapter in the Beth El story!
