As you are aware, our community continues to work hard to renew our practices, increase our
membership and improve our surroundings. We take pride in our community and our synagogue,
as they are both a big part of who we are. We pitch in and support one another as a community
both in times of need and celebration; and we pitch in to support our synagogue working to make
it haimish, a place of warmth and love.
This is the time of year when we all must consider the needs of our community in an effort to
sustain our Jewish identity. In doing so, we are excited to introduce:
The Aleynu* Project ~ Strengthening our Future
*It’s up to us
This new campaign will help us to achieve our goals as a congregation, which include coming
together; supporting each other’s needs as well as the needs of the synagogue, while also
sustaining and growing our Jewish community. This campaign also comes to you in place of our
“planting the seeds” campaign and is a new way of thinking about how we can further invest in
our community. A separate letter will be sent to you outlining the details of The Aleynu Project,
and will include opportunities supporting various areas of need and at different levels ranging
from $36 and up to represent choices that might appeal to everyone. We do hope you will
consider making a contribution that works for your family and your budget. Listed below are
examples of how to support our future at CAA… every bit helps!
Temple Tributes—Prayer Book dedications, memoriam plaques
Items in Need—portable marquee sign letters, folding chairs, 8-foot tables
Building Fund—general repairs, ADA accessibility, parking lot resurfacing
Support—Rabbi’s discretionary fund
Unrestricted Funds—salaries, unforeseen expenses, to be used as needed
As referenced above, we look forward to coming together, supporting each other’s needs as well
as the needs of the synagogue, while also sustaining and growing our Jewish community! We
thank you for your consideration and support as we move forward to strengthen our future!
