The High Holy Days season is a time when many people want to make special donations to our
Temple. It is also a season in which our Temple has many extraordinary expenses. This year, we
thought we would help potential donors by providing a list of some of the specific expenses
incurred during Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. You can make the donation in honor or
memory of a loved one and, if you so wish, your donation will be acknowledged during services
on the High Holy Days.
If you would like to assist Har Sinai Temple with any of these expenses, please contact the
Temple office at (609) 730-8100. Please do not interpret this list as a limitation; if you would
like to honor this season with a donation but for something not on the list, please let us know.
