Yom Kippur Appeal 5784             

Dear Friends,   “Repentance, prayer and charity avert the evil decree.” Starting with Kol Nidre, and ending on Hoshana Rabah, your charitable contribution can help us greatly.   Giving in observance of Yom Kippur is especially important. It is said that the jingling of coins given on erev Yom Kippur creates such a clamor in Heaven that all the forces of evil cannot stand in their way.     Please click here to give online (for "Type," toggle to Kol Nidre Appeal or Yom Kippur Appeal).   Thank you for your contribution. Your support – in any amount – makes a big difference.   G’mar chatima tova,   Rabbi Aaron L. Raskin Spiritual Leader   Brooke A. Bryant, PhD President
