Congregation Beth Shalom of the Blue Hills needs YOUR support!
Supporting a synagogue is about so much more than donations – it’s also about volunteering and getting involved. Here are links to some of the many programs and funds that need you. Please contact the synagogue office if you have any questions or want to get involved!
Buy from Amazon – Support CBSBH!
How would you like to donate to the CBSBH Capital Campaign every time you buy from Amazon – at no cost to you?
We now participate in “Amazon Smile”, a program in which Amazon donates 0.5% of the price of eligible purchases to us. It’s easy – just follow these three steps:
- Choose CBSBH as your Amazon smile charity
Sign on to smile.amazon.com with your Amazon login and password, and select Congregation Beth Shalom of the Blue Hills as your preferred charity
Visit https://smile.amazon.com/ch/04-2218597 to automatically select CBSBH.
- Check out from smile.amazon.com every time you pay
Everything about the Amazon smile site is the same as the regular Amazon site – but you must complete your purchase from smile.amazon.com for us to get the donation. (You can use the regular home page or the mobile app to put things in your cart, but if you use them to check out and pay, we won’t get the donation.)
If you already shop at Amazon, keep it up – just pay via Amazon smile, and we’ll get a donation. It’s really that easy!
We are currently looking for volunteer photographers specifically – but we can always use an extra helping hand! If you have a skill you would like to offer, please contact the synagogue office at email@example.com.

Scrip is a term that means “substitute money”
When you purchase Scrip you’re purchasing gift certificates and prepaid cards that are used the same way you would use cash to shop in supermarkets, pharmacies, (CVS or Walgreens), clothing stores, restaurants, home
improvements stores etc. The difference is that our Temple will earn a percentage each time Scrip is purchased. There is no additional charge to you. $25.00 for $25.00 or $100 for $100.
