Elise and Other Musicians at Chanukah

Do you have a simcha, special occasion or memorial that you would like to acknowledge? Consider a donation to Congregation Shir Libeynu!

Your donations to Congregation Shir Libeynu make a big difference! They allow us to offer unique services, education programs and other special events throughout the year. They keep our community strong and vibrant.

If you are celebrating a simcha, such as a birth, birthday, wedding, anniversary or graduation, or comforting a mourner, please consider making a donation in honour of your family member or friend. Unless you indicate you wish to remain anonymous, we will send  a message informing the honouree/their family that a donation has been made by you in their honour.

Please consider a donation of $18, $36, $90, $180, $360, or any other amount you choose. Why multiples of 18? In Hebrew, the word for life is chai, and the number 18 is also chai. So, it is traditional to make donations in multiples of “life”! However, any amount is always appreciated.

We issue tax receipts for all donations by the end of February.
