We are at a transformative moment, today, a moment rich with challenge and opportunity. How can we create a strong financial foundation at Temple B’rith Kodesh to sustain the quality experiences our members enjoy? How will we respond to new challenges to make certain that TBK remains strong and relevant for its members? How can TBK be your place to experiment, to learn, to reflect and to experience life enriched with a sense of meaning and purpose?
As with congregations across the United States, TBK has been affected by demographic and financial challenges. While the continuing support of our longtime members is notable, the aging and declining Jewish population trend in the Rochester area has resulted in decreased TBK membership levels and inadequate resources to sustain our future.

"One of the richest parts of my life is that I live in a community with a robust Jewish population. My campaign contribution is going to serve not just the temple, but also my hometown. I’ve invested in my business. I’ve invested in my retirement. I’ve invested in my kids. Now, I’m going to invest in Jewish Rochester. "
