Making a gift to Temple Beth Am is a time-honored way to celebrate life cycle milestones, such as welcoming new children, consecration, becoming b’nai mitzvah, Covenant Renewal, graduations, engagements, weddings, new jobs, and any other significant moment. It is also a sacred way to remember loved ones on their death and on their yahrzeit (anniversary of their passing). Lastly, making a gift to Temple Beth Am is a meaningful way to show appreciation for clergy, professionals, and fellow congregants. By donating to Temple Beth Am, you demonstrate your commitment to our sacred work.  

For commemorating lifecycle events and honoring the memory of loved ones, we suggest a donation of at least $18 to the fund of your choice. If our clergy have supported you through a lifecycle event, provided you with pastoral care, or inspired you to deepen your commitment to Judaism, we encourage you to give from your heart to the best of your ability. If you would like specific guidance, please call Davida Sims at 206-525-0915. 

Temple Beth Am has a number of special and restricted funds that advance various aspects of our mission. For example, our Homeless 2 Renter (H2R) Fund, underwrites our partnership with our local Jewish Family Service to provide eviction prevention and move-in assistance to families with children in the Puget Sound region. Please click here for a description of each of our funds. New special funds may be established with a minimum gift of $10,000. Please contact our Executive Director, Davida Sims, by telephone (206-525-0915) or by email ( for more information. 

Gifts honoring, remembering, appreciating, and wishing people well are published monthly in a special community-wide email.
