BJBE offers a variety of opportunities to make meaningful donations. Support for the synagogue is a crucial form of tzedakah, bringing meaning to our lives and perpetuating the Judaism we love. It is through the generosity of congregants that BJBE has thrived for generations.
Ways to Give
Donate to a BJBE Fund - In Jewish culture, it is traditional to mark significant occasions and milestones by giving tzedakah (charity).

Faith, Courage, Wisdom Fund - BJBE has always been a congregation of influence. Under Rabbi Karyn Kedar’s leadership, it has become one of the nation’s flagship Reform congregations, renowned for its models of sacred partnership, willingness to meet the moment, and creativity. Inspired by Rabbi Kedar, Congregation BJBE has established the Faith, Courage, Wisdom Fund to further this vision. The Faith, Courage, Wisdom Fund will support bold, new opportunities and initiatives, make it possible to champion our core values and cultivate innovation, and bring our community together in extraordinary ways.
Endowment Fund - Donating to the Endowment Fund is a bridge to the future for BJBE. It is both practical and visionary. The BJBE Endowment Fund ensures the needs of our synagogue will continue to be met for generations to come. A strong Endowment Fund is absolutely essential in order to ensure the long-term health of our congregation and to continue to educate, support, sustain, and inspire our BJBE community for many years to come.
