There is a little-known biblical commandment that each adult Israelite give a half shekel to the synagogue for its maintenance. This has evolved into a mitzvah called “Machatzit HaShekel” and is done on the eve of Purim
Last year, we launched our first Half-Shekel Campaign. Despite the pandemic, we raised $40,000 from gifts of all sizes. While most of us have not been in the building to see or experience the improvements we were able to make, take a look at the video below for a sense of what we were able to accomplish last year!
As Purim fast approaches, we have an imperative need to continue investing in the infrastructure of CBT.
Your participation will make a difference in reaching that goal. Please donate what you can—$18, $180 or $1,800 or more to help us reach our goal. Click here to donate.
Thank you in advance for your generosity.
