We Welcome Your Support
Please join us in the work of building a kehillah kedosha (holy community) with a financial gift.
If you have questions about our various needs and funds please see below.
Perhaps you are considering having a loved one’s name added to our Temple yahrzeit (memorial) plaques. Inscribing names on a memorial plaque is a wonderful way to treasure their memory.
To secure a plaque, you can place an order by clicking here: YAHRZEIT PLAQUE ORDER FORM.
SHANA WINTER JEWISH RELIGIOUS EDUCATION FUND
This fund was created to honor the memory of Shana, who spent many years at TBI, first as a student, and then as a Religious School teacher prior to her untimely death at age 25. Shana was deeply committed to Reform Judaism and was a dedicated, loving teacher. This fund will be used to fund professional development training for TBI Religious School teachers and to provide resources for Family Education events. In this way, Shana’s legacy will continue to be a blessing to Temple B’nai Israel and the Kalamazoo Jewish community. Click here to donate to the SHANA WINTER JEWISH RELIGIOUS EDUCATION FUND.
