Temple Funds

Temple Israel's budget is approved annually at the Congregational Meeting each April and administered throughout the year by the Temple Board of Directors.

80% of operating expenses are covered by membership dues and the rest by donations and fundraisers. In addition to the general operating fund, Temple Israel has several dedicated funds:

Adult Education Fund
Building Fund
Concert Fund
Library Fund
Rabbi's Discretionary Fund
Religious School Fund
Youth Group Fund

Additionally, the Temple Israel Foundation, the long range planning and development arm of Temple Israel, assists with capital campaigns, endowment giving, planned giving, and specific appeals to meet the needs of Temple projects beyond the regular budgeting cycle.

Please contact Linda Skolnick, Membership Committee Chair, with questions about membership, Irwin Cohen for information about making a donation, and Fred Hamburg, Temple Foundation President, regarding the Temple Foundation.
