Our Religious School/Sunday 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.
The biard is asking you consider a donation to help with the purchase. The cost of the set plus installation is approximately $12,000 depending on the safety features., Whatever you can afford will be deeply appreciated by our youngest members!
You can mail a check to:

Thank you for all you do for our synagogue!
Why 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.
