Our Temple Avodah congregation comes through again!
This is the first time we have exceeded the goals for our Rabbi’s Challenge.
Your generosity and participation is awesome.

Rabbis Challenge Thank You Temple Avodah
To my Temple Avodah Family:
For the last several years my wife Peppy and I have made contributions to our temple and used that money to launch the “Rabbi’s Challenge”. Last year our focus was funding our school and repairing our very large parking lot and replacing several dangerously sinking dry wells. To those who contributed to that effort, thank you!
This year we have two major projects that need funding, which go to the heart of our Temple.
Our Torahs and Sanctuary
One of our Torahs has ripped and is in need of expensive repairs.
Our other Torahs are beginning to deteriorate and are in need of being properly preserved.
The windows at the back of the sanctuary are leaking. All efforts to seal them have failed… You may have seen the plastic flapping in the breeze. Our extensive research indicates that the entire window structure needs to be replaced to ensure no further leaks and damage to the sanctuary walls.
I’m setting a goal of $36,000. I know we can do it! Please, please help prove me right!
Peppy and I will get it started with $2,000. It’s our temple and our community too.
Please make every effort to contribute. You’ll be able to watch the Challenge thermometer in our lobby. Let’s make it happen.
Temple Avodah is YOUR Temple, and every dollar counts! Take a stand, write a check, invest in your Jewish community.
For a contribution of $540 or more you will receive an invitation for a special event. I don’t know what that will be yet but I promise it will be fun.
Rabbi Uri Goren Temple Avodah
What’s The Rabbi’s Challenge?
We’ve all heard the phrase “charity begins at home”. Well, Rabbi Goren has said, on many occasions, that Oceanside is his community and Temple Avodah his Jewish home. With that in mind, he and his wife Peppy launch this important fundraiser with a donation of $2,000.
His “Challenge” is simple – he challenges all of us to contribute to the well being of our Jewish home. Remember, if it were not for everyone who came before us there would be no Temple Avodah and we need to do our part, for today and tomorrow.
