Donation Campaigns

Donations in support of the annual High Holiday appeal.  The High Holiday appeal is an important part of the annual budget at STS.

Donations are an integral part of Shomrei Torah Synagogue Fundraising. It is through generous donations we are able to welcome everyone that wants to become part of our synagogue family to join STS regardless of their ability to pay. We are an important part of the community and we open our doors to all who want to enter into a vibrant Jewish life and a place to derive comfort from the knowledge and practice of our rituals and traditions.

Donations to the Rabbis Discretion Fund are used by Rabbi Camras to aid with individual, educational or any other needs of the STS congregation and community. They help the Rabbi assist families in times of special need with funds, food or any other essentials to get through a difficult time or situation.

Memorial funds honor the memory of a member of the community with projects they were passionate about. Yizkor donations are traditionally made to this fund when a person is reciting the Yizkor prayer on the anniversary date of the passing of a loved one (Yarhzeit). It is a special way of honoring the memory of a loved one. A contribution to STS helps to ensure that the synagogue will be there to continue to provide a warm and nurturing place for the mourner to be able to perform the mitzvah of reciting the Yizkor prayer. Order a Memorial Plaque for recognizion on the wall in Heytow chapel. Download the form here and make the payment online or by check to STS.

Help support our prayer book fund. Each dedication will appear on a book plate inside the front cover of the Siddur or Machzor that can be dedicated , in honor, in appreciation or in memory of a loved one.

Donations made to these funds are used to augment the programs with additional educational or enrichment materials. This affords our members opportunities to participate in synagogue as well as community programs. Our youth of today are the leaders of tomorrow – m’dor l’dor – we will give our youth of today the foundation to build for future generations.

STS has different community groups --  USY/Youth Department, Men's Club, Sisterhood and Hazak (Seniors 55+). Each group affords commradorie programming, activities and special events for different membership groups.Click donate now to make a contribution to one of our affiliate groups.
