The Community Free Synagogue Receives Chai Minded Grant
C.F.S. recently received a very large and unsolicited grant from the Chai Minded Foundation with this note:
Rabbi Diamond, your “free synagogue” model is so impressive that I had to send a gift. That is quite different from the “fair share” model seen so often. Congratulations on your accomplishment!!
We are grateful to the anonymous donor who does such good for select synagogues around the country, and are deeply gratified by his observations. Generosity like this affirms that we doing the right thing by not charging for prayer and study.
The Chai Minded Foundation joins the Lustigman Charitable Trust as a major institutional supporter of C.F.S.. Of course, the synagogue's principal means of meeting its very streamline expenses are many hundreds of personal donations freely offered by its participants and friends.
