Living Our Values 5780/2019-20


Over the past few years, BK's Living our Values (LOV) fundraising campaign has set records in both participation and donations. Time and again, the BK community has "SHOWN the LOV" and "GROWN the LOV". This year, thanks to the generosity and kindness of six BK families, we have the opportunity to exceed our financial goals yet again, with a challenge match of $36,000 available which will match donations to LOV.

As you may have heard from me on Kol Nidre, the LOV campaign is one of Bnai Keshet’s three key revenue streams – tuition and dues being the other two. Our annual LOV campaign helps cover our operating budget and the many vital and expanding programs that you know, love, and participate in.

With thanks again to our six anchor donors, for renewed support donors (the majority of us) any amounts contributed over your gift amount from last year will be matched by 6 to 1 and for first-time donors to LOV, your entire gift will be matched by $6 for every $1 donated.

Your support for LOV will ensure that BK continues to be:

●     A diverse congregation, led by our engaging and inspirational rabbis, and committed to Tikkun Olam through its advocacy and programs.
●     A community fueled by the generosity of its members where no one is ever turned away for financial reasons.
●     A synagogue committed to keeping our High Holiday services open and accessible to all.
●     A community that partners with other faiths to welcome residents of Montclair and surrounding towns who are homeless to come to MESH for a warm meal each week, served with kindness by our congregants.
●     An innovative Bet Midrash program.
●     A warm, safe, and supportive community that welcomes individuals and families from diverse backgrounds, beliefs, interests (and yes, even politics).
●     A chance for a quick game of GaGa--fun for both our children and for us (when our kids are not looking).
●     A way to participate in BK’s affinity groups including hiking, reading, tennis, and dancing.
●     A chance to learn from, and study with, distinguished invited speakers at our adult education programs.
●     A desire to keep you safe by providing ongoing facility improvements and increased security measures.

Thank you so much again for supporting LOV and for helping us to GROW our future.
