There are many opportunities to give charity to the needy in the community. Funds are collected before holidays such as Passover, Sukkot, and Purim. Year-round, members can contribute to the Tzedaka Fund, and during weekday shacharit, there are pushkes for Magen David Adom and individuals who come in-person to the shul. Three times a year, appeals are made for the shul. On other occasions, appeals are made for other Jewish organizations such as yeshivas, Bikur Cholim, Ezras Torah, Hatzolah, Magen David Adom, etc.
There are many opportunities to donate various monetary amounts to the shul:
$18 Shabbos afternoon youth groups (with sponsors' names printed next to refreshments)
$54 seudat shlishit
$65 haskama minyan kiddush
$125 tree of life leaf (in the Haring St. lobby)
$2,500 window in the main sanctuary (only seven windows remain left to donate. A plaque next to each sponsored window indicates sponsors.)
$X donations of any amount accepted and appreciated
