capital campaign : the benefits

As a warm, Jewishly diverse congregation there are many reasons that people engage with our synagogue — some relish the opportunity to grow spiritually in a nurturing environment, some want to provide their children with an excellent Jewish education, and others enjoy meeting new friends through social justice projects. Others just like knowing that there is an inclusive Reform synagogue in Brooklyn that is there for them when they need it. 

We are excited that the acquisition of 127 Remsen Street will help to meet these needs and create a more comfortable place that all can call home. The expansion to additional floors and outdoor space enables more opportunities to build on our mission and for us to connect as a community. 

The Benefits 

  • More space that is conducive to exploring intellectual curiosity and creative expression.
  • More occasions for parents to linger after class to get to know other parents.
  • More opportunities for socializing and forming closer bonds with neighbors.
  • Increased accessibility to Rabbi Lippe, whose office will be located in the new building.
  • More ways to be creative as a congregation in meeting collective needs as we continue to grow.
