2021 Spring into the Future Fundraiser

Our annual Spring Fundraiser is a tradition at Temple Shalom to help us raise the necessary funds to ensure a vibrant and secure future for our Temple family.  As you know, we’ve had to adapt how we come together as a congregation this past year due to the pandemic. So this year we wanted to try a new way to join together as an active and vibrant Jewish community, have fun, and give generously to the Temple.


We offer a fundraiser in two acts.  The first is a series of challenges where congregants, friends and family can participate individually or in smaller groups with health and safety in mind. The challenge teams we offer are listed below.  For more details or to sign-up for a team, click on the RSVP button for each event.  Or, if you prefer, email or call the team captain. If you don’t wish to participate in any of the challenges, please sponsor one or more!


This is a fundraiser!  We offer you two opportunities to donate.  First, you can sponsor one or more teams. An additional opportunity is to contribute during our June 6th, 2021 Spring into the Future Grand Finale event. The finale will offer entertainment, a video montage showing highlights of the team activities, and our traditional Spring appeal for donations.

To sponsor a team, click on the Donate button, choose your amount and pay through PayPal or by check. By sponsoring a team, you are letting your congregation know that you support our community. Please give to your Temple generously; your contribution matters!
