Temple Sinai Matching Gift From Max And Elaine Appel 

Because of the Covid-19 Pandemic, there has been a terrible shortfall in Temple Sinai’s finances. Revenue from our Preschool has been drastically reduced. Many of our members have lost jobs and have seen their incomes shrink leaving them no choice but to reduce their dues and contributions. The pressures have already caused us to lose valuable staff and there is no telling when the pandemic will be over.

Our goal as a congregation is to raise a total of $500,000 to address the revenue shortfall.

Temple Sinai is so fortunate to have longtime members Max and Elaine Appel generously pledge a matching gift of $200,000 to help the congregation navigate through the Covid-19 Pandemic. With the Appel’s gift, all donations up to $200,000 will be doubled.

From the beginning of this pandemic, we were astounded by the outpouring of generosity from our Temple Sinai community. We have been blessed with so many donors, large and small. To raise the funds and reap the full benefit of the Appel’s extraordinary generosity, we need your gifts and your participation.

Your contribution will help support the work of our Clergy, Staff, Religious School, and Preschool. Tzedakah always plays a critical role in supporting those in need, but that role is even more critical right now. Once again, thank you for your meaningful support.
