We are currently seeking additional "Matchers" to help make this year's Day of Giving as successful as possible. If you would like to learn more about this option, please contact the Rabbi during the next week to discuss.

A "Matcher" is someone who, in order to encourage more giving from the public, offers to match the public's giving up until an amount that the Matcher sets.

Either way, whether you will be joining in as Matcher or as general supporter, save the date of Sunday, December 15, 2019. Please be sure to join in as we partner together to ensure a bright future for Jewish life in the Bay Area!
