Prayer Book Donations and Kiddushim Sponsorship

Congregation Sons of Israel has an ongoing need for new Siddurim and Chumashim. Donations of this type offer you the opportunity to honor the simcha or memory of a relative or friend; a label of dedication is inserted into each book donated. Descriptions and pricing are listed below.

Each Shabbat also offers the opportunity to honor the memory of a deceased loved one or to commemorate a special event (e.g., a birthday or anniversary) with a sponsorship of our weekly Kiddushim. Your name and the name of the person or people in whose memory you are contributing will be announced from the Bimah and listed in the weekly handout on the Saturday of the specified Shabbat.

These contributions may be made online using your Visa or Mastercard or PayPal account.

Congregation Sons of Israel also offers many other opportunities for the mitzvah of Tzedakah. To contribute to one of our special funds, please visit our main Tzedakah page.

Thank you for your consideration.

Siddur Lev Shalem ($36/copy)

The Siddur Lev Shalem is the latest comprehensive siddur published for the Conservative movement. Like our High Holiday Mahzor, it features a four column format with transliterations, new translations in contemporary language, a commentary providing historical context as well as kavanot, poetry and prose that expand and enrich our relationship to the text. It is both more traditional and more contemporary than any previous siddurim, and is the most approachable siddur ever produced for the Conservative Movement.

Etz Hayim: Torah and Commentary ($60/copy)

The first new Torah commentary for Conservative Judaism in over 70 years, Etz Hayim: Torah and Commentary, explores the importance of social justice in Judaism and attempts to ground the Torah historically by ascertaining its meaning to the ancient Israelites. The Chumash also investigates the Jewish legal tradition and its foundations in the Torah; and offers commentary on the haftarah (Torah portions to be read in the synagogue throughout the year).
