Annual Fund 2020-21

Friends,

I write to invite you to join me and our Board of Directors in supporting Or Shalom through our Annual Fund campaign. The Annual Fund campaign is, after membership dues, the main support for the programs and staff that allow our community to thrive.   

Read Or Shalom’s weekly newsletter and you see a community bursting with activities: Shabbat services, holiday celebrations, sanctuary work, interfaith projects, juicy Torah learning, efforts to protect our democracy and more. We celebrate b’nai mitzvot. We mourn our losses. We continue to connect in so many ways in defiance of a pandemic which seeks to isolate us.

None of this would be possible without the wise and loving guidance of Rabbi Katie and our professional staff. 

As individuals, we join OS for different reasons, seeking different levels and types of engagement and personal support. As a community, it is our collective financial support that makes it possible for Or Shalom to meet the needs of such a diverse community of people.

Rabbi Katie reminds us:
As our nation continues to experience turbulence and uncertainty, it is more important than ever to ground ourselves and remember that we have a caring community and a deep wellspring of spiritual resources to lean into.  

Indeed. 

Please join me and our Board in supporting Or Shalom through our Annual Fund campaign. Together we will meet current and future challenges. 

You bring such generous gifts to our community, and we are all better for it. Thank you for being a continuing source of inspiration.

With love and gratitude,
Janet Jacobs, President
