Temple Sinai exists only through the generosity our members and friends. Through your giving, we are able to provide education, community service and special programs, as well as continue to expand and enhance our core services.
Direct donations to Temple Sinai and various charitable funds can be made online, via PayPal or using our secure ShulCloud member portal. Using either of these online systems, you may optionally designate a fund to which your donation will be applied. Love the music? Direct your donation to the Music/Technology Fund. Help the Rabbi realize his goals? Designate your donation for the Rabbi’s Discretionary Fund.
Especially convenient for our members, and also available to non-members. When you donate via the ShulCloud member portal, you may designate a fund for your donation by selecting from a menu of choices. Or, let us put your donation to use where it is most needed at a given time.

Jewish tradition sees memory as a sacred act, allowing us to be inspired by the good in a loved one’s life and live more fully in our own days. A Memorial Plaque placed in our Sanctuary allows for a permanent remembrance of a loved one, ensuring that their name will be recalled in perpetuity in our congregation.
Memorial Plaques can be added to our Sanctuary Memorial Wall by any Temple Sinai member at any time. For a donation of just $300, a bronze plaque inscribed with the English name (one per plaque) of the departed along with the date of death from both the Gregorian and Hebrew calendar will be added to our wall. Each year, the loved one’s name will be read in remembrance on the Shabbat closest to their yahrzeit.
Tree of Life Leaf or Rock
Have you noticed our “Tree of Life” at Temple Sinai? It is located on the wood-paneled wall in our Main Lobby. The tree consists of engraved leaves and rocks. It is a great way to help Temple Sinai raise funds, while while honoring a special person or event in a way that will last for many years to come. For just $125 per leaf or $600 per rock, you can honor a teacher or special mentor, acknowledge the birth of a new baby, a milestone birthday, wedding, anniversary, bar/bat mitzvah, or any type of celebration.
One way of giving to the next generation, and to the Jewish people, is by supporting local Jewish communities with planned giving. Be our partner! Working together, we can secure the future of progressive Judaism in northern Vermont l’dor vador, from generation to generation.
