Tithes and offerings are as old as Abraham and Melchizedek (Genesis 14:17-20). The Bible sets a standard of giving back to the L-rd 10% of your gross income.
Significant biblical events and all feasts from the Tanakh (the Old Testament scriptures) are based on the Hebraic twelve month calendar. G-d appointed the sun and the moon as signs for His “appointed times.” Genesis 1:14
Congregation Beth Hallel joyously and gratefully marks Life Cycle Events, such as births, bar/bat mitzvahs, graduations, marriages, salvations, and deaths, with dedications on our Etz Chaim “Tree of Life” prayer wall near the Main Entrance.
Beth Hallel tithes 10% of its annual budget to a variety of local and international outreach opportunities. You may wish to contribute an additional amount, above and beyond your tithe, to one of these important Kingdom works.
