Chabad of San Miguel is a branch of the worldwide Chabad Lubavitch Movement. Chabad has a presence in thousands of cities throughout the world. Each location is individually funded by its own fundraising campaigns and charitable giving of individuals, and all contributions benefit the community with Jewish programming and events.
The Chai Club is a group committed to the financial support of the Chabad of SMA.
Chabad of SMA does not ask for annual membership dues. We haven an open-door policy, where everyone is welcome regardless of affiliation, background or financial status.
A substantial part of support for Chabad's work comes from individuals who commit to a monthly contribution. These monthly donations add up and make a great difference in covering Chabad's operational budget.
It's a great opportunity to give tzedakah and help us contribute to the community. Any amount is significant.
The Talmudic adage, “Each and every penny adds up to a large amount,” enjoins us to give all we can to charity and displays how meaningful that tzedakah is.
Here’s a quick calculation to show the significance of $18 each month. Ten people giving $18 per month (about 59 cents daily) is $180 per month. Over twelve months that’s $2160.
Now if we had ten donors at $18 per month and ten donors at $36 per month and ten donors at $72 per month and ten donors at $108 per month and ten donors at $180 per month, that would mean 50 donors are contributing $49,680 annually!
We pride ourselves in operating an extremely efficient organization and stretching every dollar. But still, we do not receive monetary support from Chabad Lubavitch Headquarters and depend on donors like you!
Join the Chai Club today to help us make an impact on Jewish life in SMA. Pick a dollar amount in multiples of $18 ($18, $36, $54, $72, $108, $180 etc.). Eighteen is the numeric value (gematria) of the word CHAI, meaning life in Hebrew. You can always increase it or decrease it.
