Opportunities for Giving

The Rockdale community believes in the power of tzedakah to make our Temple and the community in which we live a better place. Through the years, concerned congregants have helped establish many of our 21 Tribute Funds. These funds help in providing musical enrichment programming, youth projects, as well as a host of wide-ranging educational activities. They also support the maintenance and operation of Rockdale Temple. Members and their families and friends can participate in the mitzvah of Tzedakah and make contributions to these funds to celebrate life cycle events, recognize outstanding service to the community, or offer memorial tributes.
