Congregation Beth Shalom of the Blue Hills

Serving the Jewish Community of: Milton, Quincy, Boston, Hyde Park, Dorchester, Roslindale, Braintree & Surrounding Areas

Capital Campaign


We hope you are enjoying the beautiful new spiritual home of Congregation Beth Shalom of the Blue Hills, continuing the traditions of Temple Shalom of Milton and Temples Beth El and Adas Shalom of Quincy, as we maintain a Jewish presence in Milton and the surrounding communities south of Boston.

Together with the proceeds from the sales of our former buildings, we have raised an impressive $1.1 million* in contributions and pledge commitments from our members and friends. Our capital campaign goal is $1.4 million, which will completely fund the building project. We are currently carrying a loan to finance the remaining costs associated with the new building until the campaign has been completed.

We are most grateful to everyone who has supported the capital campaign to date.  For those who have not yet made a gift, we hope you will take advantage of this exciting opportunity to help sustain our vibrant Jewish spiritual and religious home.  Our long term success will only be possible through generous financial support from people like you.  The return on your investment will be a financially sustainable, dynamic congregation in a beautiful, functional, fully-owned building.  

The Capital Campaign pledge form outlines several ways to structure your gift and bring maximum benefit to the Congregation. Donors have taken advantage of flexible giving options such as making a multi-year pledge, staging amounts over time, paying up front as a lump-sum gift, and donating vehicles through our CARS vehicle donation program. Planned giving options are also available.  We are happy to talk through any of these approaches, or others, to help you make a meaningful gift.  Please contact the temple office at 617-698-3394.  Donations at any level are truly appreciated and are fully tax-deductible.

We know that your participation in sustaining the future of our Jewish home will be a source of pride for you and your family for many years.  On behalf of the entire congregation, we thank you, todah rabah, for your consideration and generosity.

With sincere appreciation,

Amy Klotz and Jennifer Zaslow
