Donate to Congregation Jeshuat Israel

Touro Synagogue is a National Historic Site. It is architecturally distinguished and historically significant, but most important of all, after 250 years it continues to be an active house of worship. As a congregation, our first priority is to ensure that the synagogue remains open for services. However, despite our designation as a National Historic Site, we receive no state or federal funding to support and maintain the synagogue. We must rely soley on our members and friends for support.

Capital Gifts
Abraham Touro Society

The Abraham Touro Society honors Abraham Touro who had the vision and foresight to ensure the survival of Touro Synagogue by donating $10,000 to the Synagogue in 1823. We invite you to follow in Abraham Touro’s footsteps by becoming a member of the Abraham Touro Society. Your $10,000 gift will help create a permanent endowment to help maintain the synagogue building and ensure the Synagogue always remains open for services and has a rabbi in residence. Your generosity will be recognized on a plaque that will be mounted on the synagogue grounds. Our informational brochure on the Abraham Touro Society can be viewed here.
