Ways to Give


MS.Final_.Tree_.Color_.pngMekor Shalom appreciates each person's decision to support the efforts of this sacred community of sacred relationships.

The synagogue values highly all contributions, be they in-kind, volunteer hours, or financial.  

Of course, the presence of each person is what matters most of all.


Charitable contributions are customarily made on a number of occasions including:

  • In honor of or to express appreciation to someone
  • To celebrate a birth, naming ceremony, brit milah (ritual circumcision), birthday, bar/bat mitzvah, graduation, wedding, or anniversary 
  • To send good thoughts and/or recovery wishes
  • In memory of one who has recently died or on the occasion of a yahrzeit (anniversary of a death) 

Because the numerical equivalent of chai, the Hebrew word for life, is 18, donations are often made in multiples of $18.  

Mekor Shalom is honored to accept contributions for: 

A 2018-19 Voluntary Financial Commitment

The Leaf-By-Leaf Project 

The Hazzan's Discretionary Fund

The Mekor Shalom Fund 

The Security Enhancement Fund

The Torah Scroll Fund

The Youth Fund 

Complete descriptions for each of these areas for giving may be found by clicking on the link for each one above.

Donations to Mekor Shalom help to develop further the connections between each person one to the other and to the teachings of our Tradition.

If you have any questions about giving opportunities, please contact the synagogue at 813-963-1818 or by email.

Thank you for supporting Congregation Mekor Shalom.
