Giving

Membership/Dues, Pledge Payment, Kiddush, Ritual Items, Building Fund, Operating Expenses, Chesed (Kindness), Donate for Free

We welcome donations for specific programs or to our general operating funds. Your contributions help fund the many events that help make our community great! Note that PayPal does take a small percentage of every transaction, so it is better for the shul if the larger donations ($350 or larger) are made by check made out to "Temple Beth Shalom of Cambridge". However, it's better for the shul if you make a large donation by PayPal rather than not getting around to sending in a check at all.

TBS is currently undertaking a major project to repair and restore our Sefri Torah (Torah Scrolls). Please visit our Torah repair page to learn more and donate.

Ritual Items

TBS has many ritual related items varying from Torah Scrolls to Prayer Books to Kiddush Cups, all of which need repair or replacement from time to time. Exactly which items are in need at any given point in time may vary.

TBS is undertaking a major project to restore our Sefri Torah (Torah Scrolls). We have 12, and as of the beginning of the project in June of 2008, 4 were usable, but 3 of those would benefit from repair/restoration work. Of the other 8, 5 needed major repairs, and 3 were unfortunately, not repairable. Additionally various Torah dressings, etc. needed repair or replacement. Most of this work remains to be done. Please visit our Torah repair page to learn more or make a donation.
