2024 Year of Hope Capital Campaign: Replacing our Sanctuary Carpet & Other Vital Repairs

Our Sanctuary is a prayer space of profound beauty, dignity, and serenity that has stood the test of time. While, to the casual eye, the majesty of the space endures, there’s an undeniable truth beneath our feet—our carpet is torn and tattered, bearing witness to the countless footsteps of generations within these walls. The need for floorboard replacements has become evident as well, but the true extent of the damage remains hidden beneath the worn-out carpet.

It’s time to replace the carpet, in both the men’s and women’s sections, so that our sacred space reflects the reverence it deserves.

This Year of Hope capital campaign is a short and targeted effort, running from now through March. It is important to note that this initiative does not replace our annual Spring and Fall fundraisers, which are essential to fill the gap between membership dues and our annual operating budget. The funds raised in this Year of Hope capital campaign will be dedicated solely to replacing the carpet, fixing the floorboards, and some vital infrastructure repairs, breathing new life into our cherished space. We plan to commence the work in the Sanctuary during the upcoming summer months, when our prayer services routinely move downstairs to our Summer Sanctuary in the Levy Auditorium.

We are seeking 100% participation from our community, demonstrating the collective strength and commitment that defines us. Together, we can ensure that our sanctuary stands for generations to come.  

Thanks to our contributors (as of 2/21/24), we are approaching our $500,000 goal!
