Pave the Way

Together, we can Pave the Way at B’nai Israel

The Pave the Way campaign to enhance the walkway in the front of our building is well under way. Phase one of the walkway is in place in between the front entrance of the temple and the entrance to the education center. Many thanks to those who have contributed so far.

You can still order a brick for the next phase of the campaign. List your family name or commemorate one of life’s simchas – either in the past or near future. Please think about purchasing the lifelong gift of an engraved brick. Not only are you helping to build a more beautiful entrance to the temple, but you are also making a permanent mark by investing in Congregation B’nai Israel.

Your choice of bricks:
4” x 8”  $118
Up to three lines, 20 characters per line

8” x 8” $180
Up to eight lines, 20 characters per line

Additional options:
Brick Certificate $18.00
Souvenir replica brick for $36.00 with your 4″ x 8″ brick purchase or $54.00 with your 8″ x 8″ brick purchase.

Sponsorship opportunities are also available.
