Your donations are crucial for the ongoing work of the Narayever. There are many different aspects of shul life where you can help. Following is a list of our shul funds:


Current Areas of Greatest Need:

Kiddush Fund: Helps pay for the shul sponsored kiddushim. The Narayever offers a kiddush lunch after services each week.

General Fund: Helps pay for the day to day expenses of the shul.

Membership Subsidy Fund: Helps offset subsidies given to members who are unable to pay for their full synagogue dues.


Other Funds:

Adult Education Fund: Pays for speakers and other educational programming held throughout the year.

Building Renewal Fund / Capital Campaign: Supports our current building accessibility and expansion project.

Pollinator Garden Fund: Supports planting and maintaining native species in the Narayever garden, as one small way to restore the land and help the bees and butterflies.

Rabbi’s Discretionary Fund: Used at the Rabbi’s discretion. Some of the ways he uses this fund include providing assistance for young people going to a Jewish camp or on an Israel program, to help individual members of the congregation get through a rough patch or buy Pesach food, to encourage shul members who are engaging in Jewish learning, and to support worthy causes and organizations in the wider community. The fund may also be used to support special projects or initiatives within the shul that are not covered by the regular shul budget.

ShinShinim Fund: Is set up to support our shul’s participation in the UJA Federation ShinShinim program, through which two young Israelis spend a year bringing their knowledge and love of Israel to our community.

Social Action Fund/Tzedakah: Donate to worthy causes in the community as decided by the Social Action Committee (click for more info about the SAC General Fund)

Torah Fund: The Torah fund is for the purchase, upkeep and repair of Torah scrolls.

Wider Community Fund: Supports the Narayever's efforts to link the congregation to the downtown Jewish community and to the broader community in which we find ourselves.

Youth Fund: Supports our youth programming. The Narayever offers a vibrant program of activities for youth of all ages.
