Giving Circles

Your contribution to TBS is always greatly appreciated and will serve as an example for others.

Our TBS Giving Circles have been created so that everyone is included. A gift offered at any level reflects our Jewish values and helps us build a closer, stronger, and more vibrant Temple Beth Shalom community.


$18 - $179
A mensch is a genuinely kind and gracious individual. Inspired by innate caring and a desire to help, a mensch is someone who can be relied upon to give in ways that put the needs of others before self.


Giving “Chai” (18), in the Jewish tradition is synonymous with a gift of “life.” Support as a member of the Mensches Circle provides elements such as educational materials, resources to maintain the beauty of our Temple home, and music at our services.


$180 - $999
A boneh is a builder.  Bonim always start projects by creating a solid foundation and laying the groundwork for beautiful things to be made.

Supporting TBS as a member of the Bonim Circle provides families with young children programming throughout the year to get them engaged in the Jewish Community, as well as special holiday events for all ages. These gifts provide a sturdy framework upon which to build and grow.

$1,000 - $4,999
A chaver is a genuine friend. Our rabbis teach that this person is there for you unconditionally, knows you as your true self, and is even able to push you to become a better human being. The chaver gives because this is what friends do for each other.

Support as a member of the Chaverim Circle enables compassionate outreach to families following a loss, provides speakers and teachers for our adult learning programs, and supports our engagement of guest artists to make Jewish culture come to life at TBS.

$5,000 - $9,999
A tzadik is a truly righteous individual. This person strives always to live in ways that bring goodness and blessing into the world. Tzadikim are leaders who teach by example and who give of themselves as a way of fulfilling their responsibility to humanity.

Members of the Tzadikim Circle support the TBS community by providing financial assistance for our members, expanding the reach of our programming, and supporting our extensive social justice efforts.

$10,000 +
Rabbis teach, guide, comfort, inspire, and strengthen. Their work sustains Jewish life now and for generations to come. The same may be said regarding the purpose of philanthropy. 

Members of the Rabbis Circle offer gifts that support transformative development and growth in the TBS community. Rabbis Circle donors ensure long-term strength of both clergy and staff, as well as the entrepreneurial program innovations that have come to define TBS.
