Why Support Beth Israel – The West Temple?

Beth Israel – The West Temple maintains a vital Jewish presence on Cleveland’s West Side, in defiance of harsh statistics and dire predictions of the decline of Judaism in America. We believe small, grassroots synagogues like Beth Israel are critically important to celebrating our traditions, holidays and life cycle events; to creating a sense of Jewish community, as well as an individual’s Jewish identity.

We are here because we believe that small, inclusive communities like ours can encourage Judaism to survive and grow. And we are here because we believe that great things – for both our people and for all of humanity – can have humble beginnings.

We continue to be vital and strong, thanks to the generous support of our members. However, every year brings new challenges for us. We welcome your support. Our congregation accepts donations through PayPal from members and nonmembers alike.

Please use the form on the next page to donate to Beth Israel – The West Temple through PayPal. We accept tax-deductible donations of any amount. All will be applied exclusively to the specific need or program selected.

Thank you for believing in Beth Israel – The West Temple.
