Shop & Support Temple Beth Elohim
with our Gift Card Program

Do you buy food, use gas, travel, need a birthday, anniversary, Mother's Day, Father's Day, graduation, baby, shower, or wedding gifts?
Are you planning renovations or updating your appliances?
Do you want to help cover the expenses of the new Temple
without any cost to you?

Store certificates/gift cards, most in the form of a debit card, in varied denominations, are purchased by the Temple at a discounted rate; e.g., Macy's 10%, Starbucks 7%, Applebees 8%, supermarkets 5%, gas companies 2%. The certificates are sold to you at face value.

If every family participates in this program by purchasing only $200 in food store certificates, the monthly income is over $2000. By adding clothing stores, and other higher percentage certificates, the monthly income can be over $3000. The sky's the limit!

Last fiscal year we sold over $100,000.00 in gift cards and yet fewer than 25% of our Temple membership participated regularly. If families who shop locally purchased gift cards for just their groceries we could easily double our sales from last year and make some much needed revenue for our temple. Most cards are in stock and ready for your immediate purchase.

Merchants that we usually stock are:
Amazon Boston Market Rite Aid CVS ShopRite Hannafords
A&P DeCiccos Dunkin Donuts Stop & Shop Barnes & Noble Macy's
Home Depot Bed, Bath & Beyond Stew Leonards Itunes Staples Starbucks

We have many more cards available that can be ordered. The complete list of merchants can be downloaded here. Please make an effort to purchase gift cards to support our temple, we need your help!

Orders can be placed easily as follows:

1) Come to the Temple during Sunday school and see us in the lobby.
2) Email your orders to Wendy at and put Gift Cards in the subject line.
3) All cards that are in stock may be purchased any time the Temple office is open.

For further information, contact Wendy via e-mail. Please make a commitment to support this program.

Don't Throw Away That Empty Ink Jet
or Laser Cartridge!
Have an Obsolete Cell Phone?
Bring it to Temple Beth Elohim!!!

Thank you for participating in Temple Beth Elohim's ink jet recycling program. We have expanded to include Laser cartridges and cell phones too!

You can help! Any cartridge with a printhead can be recycled, regardless of brand or type. Do you have an HP, Lexmark, Xerox, Compaq, Samsung, Kodak, or Canon printer? Bring in your empty cartridges (placed in the original box that you would have thrown away to keep it safe from spills and damages, or a Ziploc bag) or cell phones and put them in the box in the cloakroom.
(Note: Epson cartridges cannot be recycled - they don't have a printhead. Damaged, remanufactured, or refilled cartridges do not qualify for this program.)

Benefits to our community:

Reduce pollution. Cartridges do not decompose for 1,000 years.
Save energy. Empty ones can be remanufactured and reused.
No buying, no selling, no burden to anyone.

Thank you in advance for helping us recycle those old ink cartridges and cell phones and participating in this wonderful fund raising program.
