Building Chai

Temple Beth Shalom serves many different roles for its members: A house of worship; a place to learn for young and old; a site to relax with friends; and a center for Jewish culture in the Western Reserve. During its 36-year history, TBS has grown and evolved to meet the needs of its members while striving to make every person who attends feel comfortable and welcomed.

While we try to offer our members a “house of peace,” our historic century building badly needs our members to offer some help in return. Time and weather have caused serious structural problems that cannot be ignored. We have foundation damage that has allowed water into the building, outdated electrical wiring that needs to be replaced and roof damage that will only get worse with time. Repairing all of these problems is needed to keep our building healthy and functional both for the present and the future.

To meet these needs, we have launched the Building Chai campaign. Our goal is to raise $96,000 to allow us to make critical repairs now and establish a reserve of funds to meet the inevitable costs of repairs and maintenance to come.

Raising these funds through private donations will help TBS to continue its long commitment to keeping dues low and not instituting a building fund, thereby keeping membership affordable. We have raised over $12,000 towards our goal, a promising start, but we still have much to do and the need is now.
