Commemorate an Event – Nediv Lev “a willing heart”
It is a gift that Jews are encouraged to celebrate life’s events through the Torah’s commandment for giving tzedakah from a “Nediv Lev” or “a willing heart” (Exodus 25:1-2). Donations to Beit Ahavah can be made 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.
Donations can be general (Beit Ahavah General Fund) or designated for an existing 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 made out to Beit Ahavah can be mailed to Beit Ahavah, 130 Pine Street, Florence, MA 01062, or you can donate by clicking on the button below (write notes about the donation in the “special instructions”, including which fund you would like to support). Donations to Beit Ahavah are tax-deductible. Thank you – todah rabbah!
Buy groceries and gas with Scrip, while it supports Beit Ahavah
Scrip cards for Stop & Shop grocery store or River Valley Market is a very easy way to help Beit Ahavah. Purchase “scrip” through Beit Ahavah to be used for purchases, and Beit Ahavah earns 5% when you use your card ($5 of every $100 of scrip you buy). Cards come in $50, $100 and $200 denominations. Click here to contact the office or Ruth about ordering your scrip.
Ideas for Scrip include buying 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 or to buy gas , 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!
