In an effort to fulfill our mission of friends helping friends, Temple Chaverim is forming a “Relief Fund” for the families that have been hit hard by COVID-19 and are not able to pay their Temple dues, as well as their children’s Hebrew School education. Our goal is to raise enough money to assist with the $30,000+ of unpaid dues for the families that have lost jobs, taken pay cuts and asked for assistance above and beyond what has already been budgeted. As time goes on we anticipate this need to increase.
