What is the commitment duration?

For as long as you'd like. Our system will charge your card monthly until you decide to increase or otherwise. Just let us know and we'll take care of it.

What if I don't want my card charged every month?

You can also be a "matcher" for our year-end campaign and make your donations in single, bi-annual, or quarterly installments.

What are these funds used for?

Fuel for the engines at Chabad. Our goal is to cover individual programs with fees and sponsorships and to cover ongoing expenses with Chai Club parterships. We don't charge membership, but we do have bills to pay.

Doesn't Chabad have lots of money?

Village Chabad is funded entirely by the community. We do not get any funding from Chabad HQ. We're extremely grateful for your partnership!

Habit of kindness

Maimonides teaches that it's better to give numerous, smaller donations, than one lump sum, even though they add up to the same amount. The logic is twofold: (1) Each individual mitzvah has unique value irregardless of the size. (2) The more acts of giving we do, we nurture a habit of kindness within ourselves which pays dividends in every area of our lives.

How much?

A little more than you were planning. The Rebbe taught us to always push ourselves, a little bit at a time. Of course, try to pick an amount that you'll be comfortable to maintain. May you be blessed!
