You can help fight food insecurity in our community by supporting the JF&CS High Holy Days Food Drive. Food from the annual food drive is the main source of donations for the JF&CS Kosher Food Pantry. Learn more here.  Bring non-perishable food donations to TKE throughout the High Holy Days.  

 

 

Ushering

Start off the New Year by performing a mitzvah! We need friendly greeters throughout High Holy Day services.  Please complete the usher volunteer form and assist our congregants in having a meaningful experience at Temple Kol Emeth. Volunteering for just ONE shift can really make a difference!

 

High Holy Day Match Challenge Campaign - Taking Vision to Reality

The past year has been one of change and growth for TKE.  In order to build on that progress, we depend on donations beyond membership commitment.  This High Holy Day season, a group of generous members have committed to matching up to $50,000 in High Holy Day Campaign contributions.  The TKE Board of Trustees, clergy and staff ask that you consider this campaign and donate generously. 

To make your donation online, click here and choose “High Holy Day Matching Gift Campaign” from the Type dropdown list. You can also contribute by check made payable to “TKE”. To give via other means such as appreciated stock, please contact the TKE office.
