Double the Difference

Elevate Your Impact with Dual Generosity

We are respectfully asking you to be doubly generous this year:

to the Israel Emergency Fund AND to Seaside.

We encourage you to consider a generous donation to the Jewish Federation of Delaware’s Israel Emergency Fund in response to the enormous needs generated by the October 7 attack. Click on the "302" logo to learn more about this campaign.

In the midst of the Israel-Gaza crisis, Seaside remains a special place to connect with one another, to stay informed, and to find strength as a community. Seaside’s end-of-the-year campaign assures we have the financial strength to serve our community during all of life’s moments, from the heartbreaking to the joyous. Help us provide the worship, education, pastoral care, community involvement and social events our members need. Click on the logo to go directly to our donation page.

Order Your 2024 Mah Jongg Cards Now
