The Tzedakah Fund distributes money on behalf of the Congregants to worthwhile charities. We feel it is incumbent upon us to share some of the money we have pooled together and act as one voice to support important causes. Past beneficiaries include the Jewish Community Federation’s Fund for Burned Churches, Jewish Family & Children’s Services, Valley Toys & Joys, the San Geronimo Valley Community Center Food Bank, West Marin Senior Services, along with many other organizations. The Tzedakah Fund is funded by 5% of our membership fees, and 10% of event fees (such as Passover) as well as direct contributions to this fund.
