By the Grace of G‑d

Rosh Chodesh Tevet 5778 - 19 December 2017

Eve of the 8th Night of Chanukah – a full week’s cycle of continual increase in lighting up the darkness!

Dear «First Name or Friend»

I hope you and yours are well and may Hashem bless you with all you need. 

As we approach the finale of Chanukah and the end of the fiscal year I turn to you with a personal request: Please help Chabad Jewish Center by donating to our year-end drive,  here.

We deeply appreciate your incredible friendship and support that has helped us this far to teach and celebrate, support and reach out to individuals in material or spiritual crisis, dispense care and friendship, inspire children and adults Jewishly, and continue to create a vibrant and warm community.

Now, as we reach the fiscal-year’s end, I am turning to you for help. We need to raise $26,000 to continue our work and to enter next year on healthy footing (to contribute, please click  here).

At Chabad there are no membership fees because we believe Judaism belongs to all and should be accessible to everyone a member at whatever level of relationship or commitment they are up to.

Nor do we receive funding from any central office. What keeps our doors open is your voluntary giving and generous investment, with G‑d’s help  and your donation stays local. Our ability to do what we do on a daily basis comes directly from local community and contributions from people like you.

Please partner in our vital work. Click  here to make a tax-deductible online donation before the end of the year or mail a check to Chabad Jewish Center, P.O. Box 80073, RSM, CA 92688 or call 264-6930 if you’d like to drop it off or have it picked up in person.  Additionally, you can use Paypal or QuickPay to chabadrsm@gmail.com.

Other helpful donations include car donations, stock transfers, professional services, and planned giving - leaving a legacy.

Also, please consider joining our Circle of Support for next year. You can help by committing to give a certain amount for the year in one sum, or every month by credit card or check. Every amount makes a difference.Monthly gifts of $250, $118, $100 or even smaller amounts, like $54, $36, $25, accumulate into reliable monthly support. You can enter a recurring donation online  here by checking off the recurring check-box, or  contact me to discuss the commitment.

If you already have joined the Circle of Support, thank you very much. These commitments are very helpful and we greatly appreciate. Can you consider raising the amount for this next year?

Tzedakah is a powerful mitzvah observance, and brings a person tremendous benefits, both spiritual and material. And the impact globally is phenomenal—as our Sages say, גדולה צדקה שמקרבת את הגאולה Great is tzedakah as it hastens the redemption, bringing our world to a state of complete and everlasting peace and goodness for all.

I wish you and yours abundant blessing in your lives, and all the best including happiness and nachas, health and prosperity, and spiritual growth and satisfaction, and may the mood, message, and miracle of Chanukah spill over with blessing into your life ahead.

With warm regards and deep appreciation,
