TOTAL TO DATE 

for our Kid's Play Station!

Thank you!

Please donate today!

Our Sunday Religious School is back in session at AIEA this month and we are busy getting our school ready for the children in our community.

 

The play station (swing set) in the courtyard is no longer safe and has been removed. We are purchasing a new,high-quality, safe play station for our kids.

 

Please consider a donation to help with the purchase. The cost of the set plus installation is approximately $12,000 depending on the safety features of the set we purchase. Whatever you can afford will be deeply appreciated by our youngest members!

 

You can donate here, online or you can mail a check to:

Thank you for all you do for our synagogue!

Why do we donate in multiples of $18?

 

Each Hebrew letter has a numerical equivalent, and the sum of the letters that create the Hebrew word for life, CHAI, is 18, chet  (numerical value of 8) plus yud (numerical value of 10). As a result of its connection to the word for life, the number 18 is considered a special number in Jewish tradition. For this reason, Jews frequently make gifts or charitable contributions in multiples of $18.

You can increase your donation by multiples of 18. SImply increase the quantity on the donation form. Below is a chart showing the dollar amount for various quantities. There is no limit to the amount you can donate!
