Our congregation is a source of great inspiration and strength for so many and through your vision, generosity and support Shalom Life Center has experienced incredible growth over the last seven years and together our spiritual community has become a beloved and established Jewish presence in SWFL. We have successfully come through the challenging times of the last two years and we are so grateful to have finally returned to in person worship. Together, we are emerging stronger than ever.
However, we are still facing difficult and challenging times as an organization. Through the last few years of the effects of the Covid pandemic our annual fundraising efforts for 2021/2022 have been negatively impacted and we continue to endeavor to meet our financial obligations as we now face the headwinds of increased operating costs due to inflation. We ask that you make a meaningful contribution to your Shalom Life Center as part of our Annual Sustainability campaign and partner with us to ensure our future.
We are an awesome community. Activity at Shalom Life Center continues to be strong and vibrant and this summer was no exception. We continue to develop and refine both in person and virtual programming to meet the needs of our flourishing SLC family and look forward to our BEST season yet in 5783 with a return of our fabulous concerts, dinners and more!
We appreciate your membership commitment, however, membership dues alone are insufficient to cover the costs of our thriving community. In that regard, we launched our 5783 High Holy Days Sustainability Campaign to answer the call for vital necessary resources. Thank you to those who have already made a commitment.
Funds raised in the High Holy Days Sustainability Campaign may be used for the following purposes:
- Increased Sanitation, Cleaning Services and staffing
- Technology Upgrades to meet and improve Virtual and in person worship
- High Holy Days Musical accompanists
- Increased Building and Maintenance costs
- Break The Fast
- Additional Staffing and Security
- Website upgrades and social media
We are here for you at all times, at all stages of life. PLEASE consider a meaningful tax deductible donation to our sustainability campaign so we can continue our vital work for you and in Southwest, Florida. While donations in any amount are greatly appreciated, below are suggested Giving Circles. As always, your generosity will be acknowledged at a special event in your honor during the 5783 season and in the special acknowledgements listed below in the Giving Circles.
Thank you in advance for your support and for being a valued member of our sacred Shalom Life Center family.
