People of the Book Campaign

Join in our People of the Book Campaign – to help us reprint our groundbreaking and widely praised siddur.  

You can participate in three different ways:  

    • By making a Rosh Pina (“Cornerstone”) gift of $1,800 for which you will be provided a personalized siddur from Rabbi Mychal Copeland.  Click here
    • As a Sofer (“Scribe”) with a $180 (or $15/month) donation.  Each sofer may dedicate a sanctuary siddur to honor or remember someone you cherish.  Click here 
    • Or by pre-ordering one or more siddurim.  Click here 

Help ensure that Siddur Sha’ar Zahav continues to be available as a beacon for the many individuals and communities that find strength and comfort in our words!
