We are proud to announce the establishment of the Bonim (Builders) Society. There are two hallmarks of this new society:

  • Philanthropy – to inspire others to join them—follow their lead;
  • Recognition/Appreciation/Thanks – we need more role models for others.

Philanthropy – Donors who contribute an individual gift of $1,000 are members of the society.

Recognition, Appreciation, and Thanks – Federation will treat all those that contribute a minimum of $1,000 individually to a beautiful pin that they may wear with pride.
Members are also recognized in our honor roll booklet.Bonim Society Pin

Why was this society established? The world is becoming more challenging for Jews:

  • France—Increase in visceral anti-Semitism. Federation pays for trauma counseling. For more information please click here.
  • Ukraine—Federation spends millions to protect volunteers that deliver food to the Jewish elderly.
  • Israel—The job is incomplete for the 140,000 Ethiopian Israelis rescued last century. Federation must be a “game changer.” There are many unmet human and educational needs.

An individual $1,000 tax-deductible gift (check with your financial advisor) qualifies you to be a Bonim Society member. It may be remitted by credit card in monthly or quarterly installments.

The form is below to facilitate you joining the Bonim (Builders) Society. Please call Linda Pollack Kessler at 783-7800 x234 if you have any questions.
