Hineini Campaign

Hineini Campaign at B'nai Tzedek Synagogue in Potomac Maryland

Engaging New & Young Families ($1,500,000)

We strive to make B’nai Tzedek a vibrant community that attracts and welcomes new families and inspires them to strengthen their engagement with Judaism. We seek to meet our families where they are in their Jewish journeys and support their personal desires and interests. To attract and retain new families, and to continue our  engagement with existing members, we must build upon the services and programs for which we are known. With an investment of $1,500,000 over 10 years we plan to:

  • Hire an associate rabbi
  • Increase funding for dues and tuition scholarships
  • Offer programs that appeal to young families
  • Support the engagement of our teens
  • Implement new marketing strategies


Reimagining Jewish Learning ($1,800,000)

One of the primary priorities of our Congregation is to provide high quality lifelong learning experiences to all of our members. In particular, the opportunity to engage our youngest learners requires special attention, and new resources. By teaching Jewish concepts in modern and innovative ways, we will bring Jewish heritage and wisdom to life, and help our community to flourish in their personal lives. We will equip our young learners with information and tools to build a foundation for their vibrant Jewish
futures, benefiting them and Klal Yisrael. Over 10 years, we plan to:

  • Support the new Director of Family and Youth Learning
  • Invest in new curriculum
  • Purchase and integrate new technologies and hardware
  • Expand Adult Education offerings
  • Expand our inclusion efforts for learners with differing abilities


Maintaining and Enhancing our Synagogue ($2,000,000)

Our shul is a beloved home for meaningful worship, celebrations, connections, personal support, and growth. Caring for our facility is expensive. Much of our equipment and structures are decades old.  A comprehensive professional study has provided us with a plan to address our maintenance needs.  Through your support, we plan to adress the following upgrades and repairs within the next 6 years:

  • Berman Sanctuary, Burtoff Social Hall and Atrium roof replacement
  • Aesthetic improvements and repairs
  • Plumbing and water systems upgrades
  • Kitchen upgrades 
  • Heating and cooling systems replacement
  • Fire and security systems upgrades
  • Exterior surfaces maintenance
  • Reducing our energy consumption


Establishing the Weinblatt Rabbinic Chair ($700,000)

Rabbi Stuart Weinblatt has dedicated 30 years to creating and nurturing the Congregation. He has positively impacted thousands of lives. His story, and our B’nai Tzedek story, is one of accomplishment and meaning. We are about to begin a new chapter in our story.  As we contemplate his transitioning to Rabbi Emeritus, and a new Rabbi joining us, we have a significant responsibility to ensure we have the financial resources to provide a smooth transition. Establishing a fund in honor of Rabbi Weinblatt will ensure that we have a rabbinic team who will serve our synagogue, provide pastoral care, continue robust lifelong learning, represent us in the community, and advocate for Israel. The fund will also support the costs of the rabbinic search process.
