BD to offer stipend to families/individuals moving to Broome County

Saba Wiesner, Beth David Synagogue’s president, has announced what the Beth David Executive Board called “a unique opportunity” for a family or individual who is willing to relocate to Broome County and become a resident. Thanks to a generous donor, a family or individuals who move to the Binghamton area will receive a monthly subsidy of up to $500 per month per year. This $500 can be applied to a rent or mortgage payment. The subsidy will be provided for a maximum of three years. In return, the family or individual will be requested to become an active member of the Beth David Synagogue community. To be an active member, a male member, who is above bar mitzvah age, is asked to attend Shabbat services two or more times a month. Female members are asked to be involved in the Beth David Sisterhood.
“Our community,” Wiesner noted, “offers affordable housing, no traffic, beautiful parks, a Hebrew day school, a three-hour drive to New York City and a Beth David congregation that will embrace you and your family!”

Wiesner added, “Beth David Synagogue is a warm, friendly, modern Orthodox shul with active members. This is a  positive and exciting opportunity for both the shul and for the family or individuals who are willing to become a part of the Beth David family. We are excited to hear from interested people and to welcome them to our community.”

Those wishing to obtain further information should contact Beth David Synagogue by sending a letter to the synagogue at 39 Riverside Dr., Binghamton, NY 13905, e-mailing or calling 607-722-1793.
