To ensure support for the mission of our Temple and the survival of the Reform Jewish community in Grand Rapids, we look to the teaching of the Torah, which states, “You shall accept for Me from every person whose heart so moves him [or her]” (Exodus 25:2).
Financial contributions should be according to your heart and means. Currently, we serve approximately 300 families, and have an annual operating budget in excess of $450,000. As we come together to support our Temple, our Temple in turn can support our community in providing a safe, warm and welcoming environment for learning, worship and belonging.
Thank you for affirming your commitment to Temple Emanuel and the Reform Jewish community. Temple Emanuel is a better and stronger community because you and your family are a part of it.
