Give

The custom of making a donation as an expression of prayer traces back to biblical times. By making a donation, we move beyond words into making a personal sacrifice. The amount of the donation is less important than the deed. Unless otherwise noted, we request that you make a donation of at least $18.00.

Reform Congregation Oheb Sholom is a non-profit organization falling under the IRS’s rules as a 501 (c)(3)  corporation. As such, your donations should be tax deductible.  Please check with your tax advisor to be certain.
