Charity is as potent a force for reconciliation as the ancient Temple altar.”
Rabbi Jochanan Ben Zakkai, founder of Rabbinic Judaism
Your donation is a wonderful way to help sustain the synagogue, mark a special occasion, remember someone dear, celebrate a birthday or anniversary, rejoice in the arrival of a child, mourn the passing of a friend or recognize an Aliyah honor. Your gift will be put into the General Fund to help defray the expenses of synagogue operations unless you designate a specific Kane Street Synagogue fund. For additional information about our funds or to sponsor an event, please contact Kane Street at email@example.com.
Sponsor a Kiddush
Celebrate a Simcha by sponsoring a Kiddush. This is a great way for individuals, friends or study groups to show their appreciation to the community.
