Congregation B'nai Israel of St.Petersburg

We need YOU to be as generous as possible so that Congregation B’nai Israel can be here for you and your family, in happy times as well as sad. All of these improvements are expensive, as you well know, and can only be done with your support. Your gift will enable your synagogue to be able to go from strength to strength, so that we can be here for you, your children, and your grandchildren, for many years to come. The goal of the Operation Upgrade campaign is $3 million. Every single gift will make a difference - please make your pledge today so that we can go from "strength to strength" together.

We must work together to remain strong… to go from strength to strength.


 

Many of us have wonderful memories of moving into our current sanctuary in 1999. Everything was brand new and the excitement of Congregation B’nai Israel stepping into a new chapter permeated the air. This beautiful “home” has served us so well. However, 23 years later, it needs some tender loving care. Just as your home needs to have major repairs, this house, your synagogue, is in need of major repairs and updates.

 

Since opening the new building, Congregation B’nai Israel has hosted thousands of events - daily religious services, educational programs, Sunday School and many simcha celebrations. Hundreds of people who have had the need to say kaddish for a loved one have found support in our daily minyan. Through the difficult challenges of the pandemic, and the ever changing environment of our world, your synagogue has remained strong thanks to your involvement and support.

 

We have stayed on top of routine maintenance, but it is time to make an investment in our Synagogue, so that we will be here l’dor v’dor, for the next generation.

Items that will be updated or replaced:

  • Replace all air conditioning units.
  • Replace entire roof.
  • Replace carpet throughout the building.
