Make a Donation
Any donation made to Shomrei is tax deductable and helps us keep our doors open for worship, study, community and social action such as feeding and housing the needy at Shomrei. You choose the fund to which you donate. 
 
Send a Tribute
A Tribute is a donation you make in honor of someone else. The person you choose to honor or their family will receive a letter (without the dollar amount of the donation) notifying them of your donation. You choose the fund to which you donate. This is a great way to further a social good (like feeding the homeless) while celebrating a simha (happy event) or commemorate the memory of the departed.    

Thank You!
Thank you for your generosity! If you approve, your contribution (not including dollar amount) will be acknowledged on our blog and in our monthly newsletter.
