Hey, People of the Book!

Many of us buy stuff over the Internet; everything from books and DVDs to pet food and tomato sauce. And many of us use Amazon.com, the world's largest store. Instead of going to Amazon.com by typing that into your computer, please go there by using one the links below, and Amazon will donate about 6% of your purchase to the shul.  Since they usually have the best prices, you save too!

For example: Here's a link to buy the Artscroll Siddur: Nusach Sefard (the same Siddur we use in the Shul).  And here's the The Chumash: The Stone Edition (the same one we use in the Shul). Or any Books at all!

In fact, Amazon donates to the Shul when you buy anything (if you go to Amazon via our links), including: 

So please use these links to help the Shul whenever you shop. Thanks!

Shop Amazon and Support the Shul

We are very pleased that the Adams Street Shul is a non-profit associate of Amazon.com.  This means that any purchase you make from Amazon, initiated from the the Shul's website or email link, results in a percentage of that purchase being donated to our organization.  Bookstoolstoyselectronics,  anything!

Whenever you are planning to buy something from Amazon.com, please start that transaction from this link, or from our website.  


Here is our direct link to Amazon. This process is easy for your convenience, and, at the same time, allows you to support the important works of the Adams Street Shul.

 

We hope you will take advantage of this great opportunity to raise funds for the Shul!  Thank you so much for your support.

If You Feed Them, They Will Come

Bert Grand at the Shul Centennial Red Sox OutingWe hope you have enjoyed the pleasant socializing each week after Shabbat morning services. Have you ever wondered how the shul manages to provide the kiddush even on weeks when it has not been sponsored? 

The Grand Family Kiddush Fund sponsors the kiddush whenever no one else has.  Even if you cannot sponsor a kiddush on your own, small donations in any amount are always welcome.  Simply designate that your donation is for The Grand Family Kiddush Fund. 

It's a nice way to honor someone, celebrate a simcha, or memorialize a loved one.  You can donate online now.
