Created by Past President Zelda Mason in 1995, the President’s Circle at Temple Israel has a long tradition of philanthropy with its members going above and beyond their annual commitment. Contributing significantly to the operating expenses of the synagogue, President’s Circle dues account for over 25% of the yearly revenues in our budget and roughly 45% of the total dues revenues. Support from the President’s Circle allows us to offer dues adjustments to those who are unable to meet the annual financial commitment.
In joining the President’s Circle, there are several membership levels. Dues are inclusive and not in addition to Temple members’ annual commitment. There are special events throughout the year exclusively for President’s Circle members. These have included a Boat Parade party on the Intracoastal Waterway, dinner and brunch meet-and-greets with headline-making guest speakers, and a special Shabbat service honoring this group. Please contact the Temple Office, (561) 833-8421, for more information.
