Kol Nidre Appeal 5782
The Yamim Noraim are rapidly approaching and the Kol Nidre Appeal for 5782 has begun; you hopefully have received the formal letter kicking off the campaign. We rely upon each of our members to contribute.
As you know, keeping our Shul open and active throughout the year is expensive. The costs have increased to adjust for maintaining and growing our Shul in a COVID-19 environment, such as the additional expenses incurred as a result of offering multiple outdoor minyanim at the Young of Israel of Scarsdale and the JCC. Our dues cover only approximately 50% of the Shul’s annual operating expenses, and the Kol Nidre Appeal is a major source of revenue to bridge the gap.
It is our goal to achieve participation from each member and that you will consider, at minimum, a 10% increase from the contribution you made last year.
Thank you to those members who have already sent in their contributions. If you have any questions or would like to discuss your participation in the Appeal, please contact any of us.
Best wishes to you and your family for a healthy, happy and prosperous New Year.
Please make your Kol Nidre pledge as soon as possible by either:
(1) using the pledge form enclosed with the mailing that you received, 
(2) accessing the Shul website Click here ​​​​​​​;
Please remember to log in to your account with your username and password and select "Kol Nidre 5782" under the Donation tab. If you wish to pledge anonymously using the website, you should indicate this in the "Notes/Comments" section. 
(3) contacting any of the committee members listed above.
As in past years, a roll of honor will be displayed in the lobby of the Shul, identifying the participants in the Kol Nidre Appeal at the following contribution levels:
      Urim v'Tumim ($10,000)       Yahalom ($7,500)
      Sapir ($5,000)                          Shoham ($3,600)
      Argaman ($2,500)                   Techeilet ($1,800)
      Zahav ($1,000)                         Kesef ($500)
      Nechoshet ($360)
As always, anonymous contributions are welcomed and will be respected as such.
