Al shlosha devarim...
Pirkei Avot ("Ethics of the Ancestors") teaches that the world depends on just three things (shlosha devarim): Torah learned and lived, worship of God from the heart, and acts of holy kindness. One of those acts of kindness -- and one that has sustained the Jewish community for the last three millenia -- is generous giving from the heart. Since you have clicked to this page, we assume that you like what you have learned about Makom Shalom, and you are thinking about ways to help our little shul to thrive.

Jim brought so much to our community over the last 2 decades, from his music and gift of tech savvy setting up our sound system, to donating towards each event and sponsoring event tickets. If you would like to honor Jim’s memory a donation would be such a blessing.
