Home is Where the Heart is

For now, home is online –and soon, also at 290 Dolores St.

Over twenty years ago, we rose to the challenge to secure our current synagogue – a “Home of our Own.” During the pandemic, we created an online home. Now long to be together again at 290 Dolores Street, to renew and expand the ways in which we connect and grow together.

This year our Rainbow Campaign is dedicated to building our future through investments in our home – with new technology, solar panels and loving renovations as we prepare to meet in-person and continue online. We are also eager to invest in staff to support all of our endeavors!

Your gift of $18, $180, $360 or more today will help secure our home both in-person and online. 

Together, we will ensure that Sha’ar Zahav remains a meaningful and thriving sanctuary for all.

If you would prefer to donate by check, through a donor advised fund or match through your employer, do not hesitate to contact our 2021 Rainbow Fundraising Chair, Mike Shriver.

Thank You!
