                    Thank you for considering a donation to                                         

A gift to our synagogue means sustaining the Jewish community in the East Valley of Phoenix, Arizona. Whether it’s a gift to our caring community fund that provides a meal to someone who is grieving, the music fund that allows us to enhance beautiful melodies with great technology, or the youth fund that may sponsor a night of fun and games (with a bit of Jewish flair of course) for our teen members- it’s a gift that’s valued and truly has a direct impact.

Your contribution is appreciated! 

Please be sure to select the option to "Dedicate" at the bottom of the donation page, if your donation is being made "In Honor" or "In Memory" of a loved one!

Tree of Life 
Our Tree of Life is a special tree. It is one that will allow you to celebrate a simcha with a lasting tribute to the person you wish to honor. By inscribing a name on the Tree of Life, you are making this joyous occasion, such as a wedding, birthday, anniversary, etc., a truly lasting event.

When you donate a leaf, you are teaching Tzedakah and expressing your belief in the importance of a mitzvah. As we see our tree blossom, so too will our Temple.
