The Capital Campaign

The campaign to pay for the extensive additions and renovations to our facility shows determination and faith in our future to all who enter our space. We realized over ten years ago that making a commitment to the future of our temple was a ‘now or never’ proposition. We’ve invested time, effort, and funds to ensure that those who follow our steps will have a spiritual home to benefit from.

It is gratifying to see what we have given rise to. At the same time, it is essential to understand where we are in this journey. The structure is in place, but we’ve not yet secured enough funding necessary to pay off the bank.

Why We Gave
