Kol Nidre Giving Plates: Empty Your Pushke/Pockets
It is our minhag on Kol Nidre to empty our pushkes and pockets on the way into services, giving the accumulated loose change to those in need. Donors have the option to select from among some of the congregation’s most tapped funds as well as various community organizations that support the health and well-being of Portland’s Jews.
This year, we encourage you to count up all that’s in your tzedakkah boxes, coin jars, couch cushions and the like. Then use the form below to select the amounts to be distributed to funds or agencies after the holidays. There is a variety of organizations to choose from. In this particular time, we are especially advocating for the Community COVID-19 Emergency Campaign, Jewish Family and Child Service, and Cedar Sinai Park.
Thank you for helping spread tzedakkah beyond the shul’s walls. L’shana tova tikateivu v’tichateimu – may you be signed and sealed for a good new year.
