Support Ohev Shalom

Like all synagogues, Ohev Shalom relies on donations made by community members to survive. Your generosity and willingness to contribute to our congregation gives us the opportunity to continue to provide educational, social and religious programming and activities, and we are thankful for all your support.

Opportunities for Giving at Ohev Shalom

Make a Donation – Send a Tribute
With a minimum donation of $15, we will send a letter on your behalf offering a Mazal Tov for a new baby or special birthday, or offering condolences on a recent death, to the designated recipient. We will also print it in our monthly newsletter.  You will have an opportunity to view the complete listing of our funds while you are placing your tribute order.

Order a Leaf for our Tree of Life
Your personal message will be inscribed on a bronze leaf on our Tree of Life located in the main hallway. It’s a perfect way to honor or memorialize a loved one. Each leaf is $200.

Purchase Gift Cards (Scrip)Fundraising While you Shop
Scrip fundraising is a no-selling program that allows families to raise money for Ohev Shalom. Scrip is just another way to pay for everyday purchases using gift cards in place of cash, checks, and credit cards. You purchase gift cards from your organization at face value, and your coordinator orders those cards from Great Lakes Scrip Center at a reduced price. The difference is an instant rebate for us. It’s really that simple! When you use scrip gift cards at your favorite retailers, you’re fundraising while you shop. We offer many of the area’s biggest brands, including grocery, department stores, gas stations, restaurants, hotels, home improvement, and more. Just by using scrip to pay for your normal weekly purchases, you can easily raise $500 or more per year. It’s time to put your shopping dollars to work!
