Machatzit HaShekel
One of the laws of Purim is to donate a half shekel for each person in your family in commemoration of the coin offered for the upkeep of the Temple in Jerusalem. Today it is used for the upkeep of our temple - CSAIR. Click here to donate to this fund. 

Be in the Sanctuary on Purim- 2-D Style!

While we cannot all be together in-person for Purim (again) this year, we have a safe way for everyone to be seen in costume and in the CSAIR Main Sanctuary for the Purim Megillah reading. Here is how it works!

Put on your costume and take a photo of yourself, your family, a neighbor, your pet, etc.  Then...

Click here to donate $36 donation per photo to CSAIR then upload your photo/s here. Submit as many photos as you would like!


Your photo will be printed as a 22’’x15’’ lawn-sign and placed in the CSAIR sanctuary pews on Purim for everyone to see, and they will be displayed as everyone comes to pick up their Sisterhood mishloach manot bags on Purim day. The signs are yours to take home Purim afternoon.

Enjoy seeing everyone in their Purim costumes during the virtual Megillah reading.

In addition, we are creating an online slideshow of all the photos to be shared on the CSAIR website and social media. 

This is a wonderful way for everyone to be virtually together in costume on Purim and to support CSAIR!

All photos must be submitted on or before Thursday, February 18 at midnight so that they are ready in time for Purim.

For More information email Mason Voit.
