Chizuk Amuno Congregation and Schools
150th Anniversary Campaign 

Vision Statement
Chizuk Amuno Congregation and Schools is a warm, welcoming and vibrant Conservative Jewish community where life is inspired by the values and through the learning of Torah. We feel a deep sense of belonging to our congregation and commitment to one another. We see ourselves as partners - working closely to create a strong Jewish community for ourselves and for our children. We share our individual skills, talents, stories, and dreams to help make our congregation engaging and meaningful for all. We are nourished by the relationships that we share, and over time, members of all ages deepen their connection with our community and with Judaism.

Ways to Give

  • A gift to our General Endowment- You can help secure Chizuk Amuno Congregation and Schools’ and Krieger Schechter Day School’s financial stability for the future by helping us grow our endowment which offsets membership costs and our annual operating budget.  Pledge Here

  • An increased one-time gift or multi-year commitment to the Annual Campaign- While we are in the midst of this milestone campaign, we are grateful for those who can go above and beyond their typical support with an additional gift to the endowment. However, we do not want the Annual Campaign to suffer. The Annual Campaign is our lifeline. Increasing your annual gift in honor of the 150th, or pledging your gift for multiple years, would help us plan strategically over time rather than year-to-year, which limits our ability to plan long-term. An unrestricted annual gift allows us to allocate your contribution where the need is greatest. Pledge Here. 

  • The Goldsmith Early Childhood Center Renovation Project- We are thrilled to have renderings for a new office and lobby which will upgrade the entrance to our preschool. The preschool is our pipeline for the next generation to both our Rosenbloom Religious School and Krieger Schechter Day School. The safety and security of our schools is our top priority. This renovation will bring our aging building to current market security standards. We have raised 50% of our goal. We need your help to raise $300,000 and make this project possible. Pledge Here

  • Consider making a legacy gift- We make plans to ensure that our loved ones are cared for after our lifetime. Why wouldn’t we also ensure that the institutions and values that matter to us are also cared for in perpetuity? A planned gift would welcome you to our Bonei Amuno Legacy Society and inspire others to support Chizuk Amuno for generations to come. By completing this form, your legacy gift can be counted toward our 150th campaign goals. 

  • Do you have other ideas of what you would like to support? This campaign is not one-size-fits-all. We’d love to have a conversation to help make your gift as meaningful as possible.

If you are interested in exploring a conversation about how you can support the campaign, please contact Rebecca Ellison, Director of Development and Major Gifts, at or 410-486-6400 ext. 272.
