North Shore Temple Emanuel
a Progressive Jewish Congregation
We have come a long way since the inception of this project and are very excited to have moved back into our newly refurbished Max Joseph Building. We are honoured to have had the support of our community to build on the work of past generations and create a vibrant new campus that future generations will be proud to call home.
All the objectives of the project have been achieved within the overall project time-frame and to specification.
We set out to raise $1.8m and through the generous support of many of our members we have raised $1.67m to date. Thank you to our donors for your contributions.
As with every project of this nature, we had some surprises, including a large unexpected drainage and sewage problem (unrelated to the project), which added additional costs of approximately 100K bringing our target to 1.9M.
In order to help bridge this gap and avoid our having to assume debt to fund the completion of the project, a number of generous benefactors in our community have offered to match any new donations or pledges made by 30 June, 2019. This means that for every $100 that you donate, NSTE will receive $200!
Thanks to our benefactors who are matching your new donation dollar for dollar, our gap has effectively been halved. It is within our reach!!
If you haven’t yet donated there has never been a better time and if you already have made a donation, perhaps you could consider a further contribution. Every little bit counts and until the end of April, it counts twice as much.
Our Key Patron, Frank Wolf, (z"l) was determined that this project be realised and in his memory we are equally determined to do so. Please help us get to the Finish Line.
(Note that a pledge can be fulfilled at a future date and over a two year period if needed.)
