Tzedakah Fund

The purpose of the Beth Emet Tzedakah Fund is to support causes, organizations and projects that promote justice, equality and social well being;to recognize each Jews obligation to perform tzedakah (righteous giving); and to encourage the member families of Beth Emet The Free Synagogue to give tzedakah as a regular part of their daily lives.
The Fund makes grants to organizations that address problems of basic human needs through:

  • Social Service by giving relief to the poor and help to victims of violence or injustice
  • Social Action by educating the public, influencing public policy and advocating social change
  • Any organization that meets the guidelines is eligible; small or large organizations needing funding for emerging or emergency projects
  • Requests may come to the Committee through another synagogue committee, from a synagogue professional (Rabbi, Cantor, Eduction Director, Administrator) or from  individual synagogue members representing the organization.
