Thank You!

On May 5, Congregation Beth Elohim celebrated our largest and most successful gala yet. More than 360 members of the community came together and helped us to raise $300,000 to get us that much closer to repairing the Beth Elohim Sanctuary.

We look forward to thanking all of our generous contributors, event sponsors, and table hosts later this week. But today we want to begin by expressing our heartfelt and very special thanks to our incredible gala chair and her hardworking committee of volunteers who made The Journey Home such a memorable event.

Special thanks also to Lightning Shakes New York for transforming the Temple House into an extraordinary space (see photos on the LSNY blog); to Steven Brown Catering for the delicious food; and to the hundreds of companies and individuals that provided the fabulous items for the auctions.

The Journey Home Begins

As we move into our capital campaign to raise the $3.25 million to repair the Sanctuary roof, we are counting on your support. We look forward to being with you on The Journey Home.
