5) Please contribute to our appeals!

In response to a friend's inquiry about my vision for the shul, I replied, "Shomrai is a place where I want you to come early, and linger longer." I would like the shul to be a place where we obtain not only religious and spiritual growth, but also opportunities to forge friendships and build camaraderie. A place where our common Torah experience can be a foundation for fellowship, and a place where casual get-togethers lay the groundwork for community building.

We're on the road already. ...

The Kol Nidrei appeal supports general synagogue operations. The Yom Kippur appeal supports YISE's vibrant youth program. Please contribute generously to both.
