Matching Monday: The December Challenge

Can we count on you to extend your hand?

Surrounded by the love and warmth of our congregation, a Washington Hebrew family of many generations sat in our Sanctuary on Saturday, October 27, proudly watching their son become a Bar Mitzvah. Unbeknownst to them, tragedy was simultaneously unfolding at the Tree of Life Congregation in Pittsburgh.

Following the events of that weekend, this family has embraced the joy and strength of Judaism and synagogue life that they experienced that day. Together, with another generous WHC family, they have chosen to take action and lead an effort to secure our shared Jewish future. These families recognize we need the vibrant programming and services of WHC now more than ever.

They have given us a matching gift challenge of $100,000!

During the month of December, these two generous families will match — dollar-for-dollar up to $100,000every new or increased donation made to Yad B’Yad, the WHC Annual Fund

Why is it so important?

The reality is that what we do each day at Washington Hebrew Congregation has a cost, and membership and program revenues do not cover all expenses. To cover this deficit, we are grateful for Yad B’Yad. When you contribute, we can continue to fund scholarships for those in need, offer quality programs that expand minds, innovate our worship experiences, and provide compelling educational opportunities for all ages.

We need your help to meet this incredible $100,000 challenge!

If you haven’t contributed to Yad B’Yad during this fiscal year that began on July 1, we ask you to please do so now. If you have already made a gift, we thank you for your early support and would be so grateful if you would also participate in this challenge. Your additional donation will be matched dollar-for-dollar by these generous families.
