Shomrei Torah offers both members and non-members many ways to provide financial support to our synagogue community. There are funds established for a specific purpose as well as funds whose purposes are more discretionary in nature. There are also several named funds, established by generous donors seeking to create an enduring legacy.
Donations of any size are welcome. Shomrei Torah is a 501(C)(3) non-profit organization, contributions are tax deductible. Please consult with your tax advisor.

Rabbi Michael Robinson Fund for Social Justice
In 2013, generous members John Weinstein and Heidi Stewart endowed the Rabbi Michael Robinson Fund for Social Justice with a major gift that will enable the fund to support Shomrei Torah’s mission to perform tikkun olam (repairing the world) for social justice.
Pictured are Rabbi George, former Shomrei Torah President Rachael Cutcher, Heidi Stewart, and John Weinstein. John and Heidi hope that others will add to the fund so that, over time, Shomrei Torah may amplify its voice in support of all those who suffer injustice.
To make a donation to this fund, select “Rabbi Michael Robinson Fund for Social Justice” in the drop-down tab of the donation form at the top of this page.
Shomrei Torah’s Legacy Circle is an extraordinary group of committed individuals who share a common vision: that our community will be a center for progressive Reform Judaism for generations to come.
Legacy Circle members remember Shomrei Torah in their estate planning—through trusts, wills or insurance policies—or provide endowment-level gifts to CST during their lifetime. A bequest of any amount helps Congregation Shomrei Torah thrive l’dor v’dor, from generation to generation.
Your gift to Shomrei Torah ensures that Sonoma County’s Jewish community will forever have a Beit Tefilah (house of prayer), Beit K’nesset (house of community), and a Beit Midrash (house of study) of its very own.
To learn more about the Legacy Circle and the potential tax advantages it offers, or to discuss your participation, confidentially and at no obligation, with an estate planning professional, contact the office: (707)578-5519 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
