Annual Contributions Due | Give Aloha Matching Donations

Shalom members and friends,

We have almost arrived at the end of year 5777. It’s been a great year for our community and as 5778 nears, we again look forward to seeing all of you at our events. We are most excited about the upcoming High Holidays with returning guest Rabbi Aryeh Azriel.

The High Holidays remind us that it’s time for our membership donations. We do not charge for High Holiday attendance; your membership is your ticket.

Your contributions at work.

Your annual contribution allow us to do many things that would otherwise not be possible:

  • Hire, transport and house our guest rabbi.
  • Make a generous annual donation to St. Michael and All Angels Church and thank them for allowing us the use of their chapel, parish hall and other facilities.
  • Subsidize the community Seder (100+ people this year) since the amount we charge does not cover the actual cost.
  • Provide many onegs throughout the year.
  • Offer a wonderful break-the-fast meal at the end of Yom Kippur, an Oneg on Rosh Hashanah and one for Shabbat Shuvah.
  • Host the annual Chanukah celebration.

Suggested annual amount.

The annual contribution is $360 for a family, and $180 for an individual. This is payable annually via check or monthly via PayPal as well as at Foodland (see below). As always, if you would like to be a member and support the community, we will gladly accept whatever you feel comfortable giving. If you can afford to give more, your generosity will be greatly appreciated and used wisely. For an additional contribution, we will affix a book plate in honor of whomever you designate in any one of our prayer books (donation of $64 per book).

Each and every one of us matters in Klal Yisrael – the shared sense of community and destiny among all Jews. Your contribution to JCK is the reason we exist here on Kaua`i. Without your participation and financial support, there would be no Jewish Community of Kaua`i. Without “you,” there is no “us.”

Foodland Give Aloha matching donation program.

Through the end of September you can contribute up to $249 of your annual donation via Foodland’s program. Click here to see our Give Aloha program details for more information.
