Moses asked every member of the tribe to donate a half-shekel, an affordable amount, so that everyone in the community could participate. We are asking Jewish families to participate in a modern-day version of the half-shekel campaign, at a suggested contribution of $18/month. These funds will enable the JCC to provide extensive programs for children, families and adults in South Denver. To contribute, go online to www.jccdenver.org/half-shekel.
