Donating to Ner Tamid


Annual membership dues don’t cover all the costs of running the Temple. In addition, not all members are able to pay full dues. This leaves an annual shortfall that must be made up through donations. Ensure that your community thrives by making a donation to Temple Ner Tamid.

Donate today to:

  • Honor the memory of a loved one or friend
  • Celebrate a simcha
  • Fulfill the mitzvah of tzedakah
  • Support the various tikkun olam, educational, spiritual, cultural and community programs at Temple Ner Tamid.

You can make a general donation to the temple, or if you prefer, you can direct your donation for a specific purpose.
