Commemorate an Event – Nediv Lev “a willing heart”
We celebrate life’s events through the Torah’s commandment for giving from a “Nediv Lev” or “a willing heart” (Exodus 25:1-2). Donations can be in honor of someone special, for the occasion of a Bar or Bat Mitzvah, anniversary, or other special life event, as an act of tzedekah, gratitude or commitment to social justice (tikkun olam), in memory of someone such as for a yartzheit or following a loss, or to help our synagogue grow and offer vital services and programs.
Beit Ahavah donations can be general (Beit Ahavah General Fund) or designated to a fund including:
- Rabbi’s Discretionary Fund
- Klara Grape Memorial Music Fund
- Israel J. Costin Youth & Education Fund
- Leroy Seftel Adult Education Fund
- Prayerbook Fund
Checks can be made out to Beit Ahavah, 130 Pine Street, Florence, MA 01062 or you can donate by clicking on the button below (write in “special instructions” notes about the donation, including which fund you would like to support). All donations made to Beit Ahavah are tax-deductible. Thank you for supporting Jewish life through our community.
Buy your groceries with Scrip to support Beit Ahavah
Stop & Shop Scrip is the easiest way to help Beit Ahavah. Purchase “scrip” for purchases at Stop & Shop, and Beit Ahavah earns $5 of every $100 of scrip you buy. Cards come in $100 and $200 denominations.
Buy gift cards for birthdays, anniversaries, holidays and help Beit Ahavah in the process. One member had the idea of buying gift cards to give to the homeless during the winter months. Most of our members use scrip for weekly trips to the supermarket, and the more scrip bought, the more Beit Ahavah benefits.
Stop & Shop Scrip for the new year will available from the Beit Ahavah office during office hours or by appointment. You can also purchase Scrip during Religious School hours on Sundays and Thursdays, and at most weekday events and programs. This program is an easy way to raise money for Beit Ahavah at no cost to you. Don’t buy your groceries without scrip!
