Tree of Life
 Leaf Dedication Donation 

A beautiful metal "Tree of Life" now hangs on the wall as you enter our shul. This exquisite art was donated by Shalom & Yuhu Braveman. It offers a unique opportunity to support our congregation. For a contribution of $100 each, you can dedicate a leaf to a loved one or use one to acknowledge yourself. 

Send a check for as many leaves as you would like to: Chadeish Yameinu, P.O. Box 3578, Santa Cruz, CA. 95063 and indicate how we should inscribe it.  Due to size limitations, there is only room for a single line per leaf, such as "In honor of _____, In memory of _____, In tribute to _____, Dedicated by _____."  Indeed, as we sing at our Shabbat services, "it is a tree of life to those that hold fast to it, and all its supporters are happy."

Special Business Offers

Many people donate 10% of their yearly income to organizations that provide for their spiritual well being. In this spirit, some members of our community have offered to donate part of their earnings from sales made to CY members to benefit the CY community. Is there a way for you, too, to donate a percentage of your income to CY if that income is made from customers or clients who are CY members?
