Commemorate an Event – Nediv Lev/”a willing heart”

Jewish community members often mark life’s events through the Torah’s injunction to give to others and support community from “a willing heart” (Exodus 25:1-2).

Donations can be made in honor of someone special; for life cycle occasions such as a Bar, Bat or B’nei Mitzvah, wedding, new children, graduations; as an act of tzedekah, gratitude or commitment to social justice (Tikkun Olam);  in memory of your loved one following a loss or to mark a Yarzheit anniversary; or simply to help our synagogue grow and offer vital services and programs.

Sponsor an Oneg Shabbat

If you would like to sponsor an Oneg or bring challah on a Friday night or other service, please contact Helen ( for available dates.


One of the best forms of support is to simply be a part of it and give of yourself.  Attend services, bring the little ones to a Tot Shabbat, bring the whole family to special events, join an adult discussion, introduce yourself to new faces, attend a Shivah, drop off food, invite someone over for a Shabbat potluck or conversation, see how many generations you can get at one table, plan an event, share your ideas, join the Board or a committee.  Thank you for making Beit Ahavah a community.
