Virtual Shopping to benefit Temple Beth Elohim
or How you can use your computer to earn $$ for the Temple while you shop.
Support our fundraising efforts each time you shop online at Amazon.com and its partners. The Temple will earn a commission for products you purchase in any of the Amazon.com departments. We even earn a commission for Gift Certificates you purchase for others to use. Most important to remember is that for the Temple to benefit, you MUST enter Amazon.com directly from the Temple website. This will ensure that purchase is credited to the Temple.
Note to our college students: Did you know that you can order your textbooks on line from Amazon and help the Temple at the same time? The Temple even earns a commission on used texts!
The benefits don’t stop there. You earn 0.5% cash back on the purchases of everyone you refer to our website. Now, you can take advantage of the ease and convenience of Internet shopping to buy the products and services you want, while feeling good about helping one of your favorite organizations.

Store certificates/gift cards, most in the form of a debit card, in varied denominations, are purchased by the Temple at a discounted rate; e.g., Macy’s 10%, Starbucks 7%, Applebees 8%, supermarkets 5%, gas companies 2%. The certificates are sold to you at face value.
If every family participates in this program by purchasing only $200 in food store certificates, the monthly income is over $2000. By adding clothing stores, and other higher percentage certificates, the monthly income can be over $3000. The sky’s the limit!
Last fiscal year we sold over $100,000.00 in gift cards and yet fewer than 25% of our Temple membership participated regularly. If families who shop locally purchased gift cards for just their groceries we could easily double our sales from last year and make some much needed revenue for our temple. Most cards are in stock and ready for your immediate purchase.
Orders can be placed easily as follows:
1) Come to the Temple during Sunday school and see us in the lobby.
2) Contact Wendy and put Gift Cards in the subject line.
3) All cards that are in stock may be purchased any time the Temple office is open.
“Traditions: A Collection of Recipes” by our members and the families and friends is on sale at the Judaic Shop and in the Temple office.

May people have bought a copy for each of the children so that they will always have a handy collection of Jewish recipes available. The is also a chapter explaining many food traditions for holidays throughout the year.
