Don't Forget the Turnover Shop!  

Temple B'nai Chaim receives 60% of the proceeds from your donations to the Wilton Turnover Shop, a non-profit thrift shop located in the Village Market building in Wilton Center.

The Turnover shop is run entirely by volunteers and benefits the Wilton schools' PTA and local nursing and home care. If you are cleaning out your closets, the shop will accept seasonal clothing, house wares, small furniture and collectibles. For further information, please email consignments@templebnaichaim.org.
Share Your Simcha - Sponsor a Preneg, Oneg or Flowers!

A great way of celebrating special simchas, such as birthdays, anniversaries, graduations, the birth of a child or grandchild, is sharing your nachas with the entire congregation by sponsoring the Shabbat oneg, preneg or flowers for the Friday of your special week. No special occasion? You can still sponsor a Shabbat! We will arrange for the flowers, food, and set-up, you just make a minimum donation of $125 for an oneg, $180 for a Preneg or $250 for the flowers.  Sponsor a Shabbat!
