Dear Member or Friend of Congregation Beth Abraham,
If you have previously attended services at Congregation Beth Abraham, you know that we have worked very hard to ensure the continued availability of daily minyanim, Shabbos and holiday services in the shul. We help to maintain the mikvah, the cemetery, supervise kashrus and welcome and assist our seasonal and holiday visitors.
However, due to ever increasing costs and the loss of a number of our members, our financial position is not as healthy as it was in years past. While our current members give of themselves and their money as much as they possibly are able, it is simply not enough to cover our ever-increasing expenses. We are at the point where, without donations from people such as yourselves, the continued viability of Congregation Beth Abraham is in doubt.
We ask you to donate as much as you are able. For a minimum donation of at least $110.00, you will be enrolled as an affiliate member of the congregation, entitling you holiday seats at no additional charge. We invite you at attend holiday services with us. Lodging within walking distance of the shul is available at the Charles Inn in downtown Bangor or the Riverside Inn overlooking the Penobscot River. Kosher dinners are available for purchase from the Beth Abraham Sisterhood by advance reservation. Further details are available by consulting our website or calling 207-942-0876.
Thank you very much for your anticipated generous donation and your ongoing support of Congregation Beth Abraham.
STEPHEN T. EMERY
