A community synagogue for progressive Conservative Judaism, welcoming to all.

Donate to the JCC Harrison

All significant institutions of culture and learning require supplemental operating funds, and the JCCH is not exempt from these fiscal realities.  Inspiring worship led by devoted clergy; educational programs for toddlers and preschoolers, school age children, teens and adults; extensive cultural and volunteer initiatives; and the preservation of our physical plant depend on the support of caring individuals. While gifts are often made to commemorate happy occasions, such as births, anniversaries, B’nai mitzvah, graduations and weddings, donations are also offered in remembrance of departed loved ones.

Listed below are the many funds to which you might consider making a contribution.  A letter of acknowledgment will be sent to the recipient notifying them of donations made in their names.  The amount of the gift will be kept strictly confidential and all donations will be acknowledged in The Scribe, our monthly newsletter.
