The Shearith Family came together for a moving and uplifting celebration to Burn the Mortgage! In May, with a remaining balance of $2.8 million dollars on our mortgage, the Fonberg family stepped up with a $1.4 million-dollar matching gift to pay off our mortgage once and for all. Because of the generosity of our congregation, and the dedicated work of our Burn the Mortgage Campaign Chairs, Sherry and Kenny Goldberg, we were able to retire the debt and literally burn the mortgage once and for all! See video below of the Burning of the Mortgage celebration. Scroll down to see a full list of all the donors.
