Yahrtzeit Plaques

A bronze Yahrtzeit plaque is the perfect way to commemorate a Yahrtzeit, and to remember a loved one.


All loved ones memorialized on a plaque are


a) Named in a Keil Molei Rachamim, every Saturday during Mincha Torah Reading services during the month of their Yahrtzeit

b) A lamp is illuminated next to their plaques during the month of their Yahrtzeit

c) During every Yizkor service the name of all those who are memorialized on a plaque have their names mentioned publicly in a special Yizkor recitation.


Names are both in Hebrew and English


$300.00 for 1st plaque

$250.00 for each additional plaque ordered at the same time



Kiddush Sponsorships


Sponsoring a Kiddush (traditional refreshments, including pastries, cholent and kugel, served in the social hall every Saturday after services) is a great way to celebrate a special date, birthday, anniversary, graduation, etc, or to honor the memory of a loved one.


After one is called up to the Torah for an Aliyah a Mi Shebeirach is recited, when he can have all his family mentioned for special blessings.


The momentous occasion is announced from the pulpit and is heralded at the Kiddush by Erwin Hollander in his inimitable style.


Sponsoring a Kiddush is a minimum of $90.00 dollars.


Library Torah Class Sponsorships

Sponsor a Torah Class for a Year, Month, etc.

Donating Funds Before Year End

The end of the year is a time when many reflect on their financial picture. At this time, you may want to consider making a charitable gift in a way that benefits both you and STBCTC. The following are ideas to consider (although believed to be accurate, STBCTC does not warrant the accuracy of this information and recommends you seek advice from a competent financial counselor):


You can reduce your taxes by contributing a portion of your income or assets to STBCTC. If you itemize your deductions, amounts given can be deducted from your income and thus freed from being taxed. The higher your tax bracket, the more you save.


In order to enjoy tax savings for your gifts this year, they must be completed by December 31.


Gifts of certain assets, such as stocks, bonds, and mutual funds that have increased in value, can provide tax savings. If you have owned such assets over a year, you can deduct their entire value from your taxable income, including any paper profits. The capital gains tax on assets given for charitable use is avoided entirely - in addition to the regular tax savings realized as a result of the gift. This double tax savings is why many people choose to make their gifts in this way.


Special rules may apply for gifts of real estate and certain other types of property. Check with your advisors before making your gift to assure it is handled properly transferred.


You may generally avoid taxation on charitable cash gifts for amounts up to a maximum of 50% of your adjusted gross income. The limit is 30% for gifts of appreciated non-cash assets. Any amounts in excess of these limits may be carried over and used to reduce your taxable income in as many as five future tax years.


Many people also review their estate plans at the end of the year. Remember that your will, life insurance, retirement plans, and other planning vehicles can sometimes offer opportunities for meaningful gifts while providing significant gift and estate tax savings. These vehicles include charitable remainder trusts, gift annuities, and estate bequests.
