Supporting our Temple

The Fundraising Committee is charged with innovative ideas in raising funds for RTPV. Throughout the year, we feature any number of activities to help the Temple financially. Among the most successful and popular fundraising programs are the approximate six Movie Nights a year and quarterly Scrip Gift Card sales. Over the last few years, the Temple has had a number of Café Night fundraisers with live entertainment and a silent auction. We put together an elegant 50th Gala Anniversary Dinner in 2017 which was a success beyond anyone’s imagination. Even during the hard realities of the Covid outbreak, the Committee scheduled fun events on Zoom to raise funds which included Jeopardy, Game Night and a Netflix Movie night. Most recently, at December holiday time, we have partnered with See’s Candies and Florida Indian River Grove for perfect gift giving!  If you are interested in joining the committee or have an idea for a fundraiser, please contact Phil at


Dear Congregants, families and friends,

We are in the holiest time of the Jewish calendar. A time we search our souls, look to where we fell short, and try to find ways to make our lives more spiritual and try to improve them.
While a congregation is not a building, we as a congregation have a building…a home…that many other small congregations do not have. Our temple needs a new roof and a new parking lot. Both of these expenses will cost tens of thousands of dollars. If we keep putting the repairs off, they will only get more expensive as the damages increase. I hope you feel, like I do, that this home is valuable, a place where we can gather as a family to share both our joys and our struggles and feel, like I do, that this home is worth investing in, with both time and money.
We don’t just need money,  we need people to donate their time. Everything that is done, is done by volunteers. And frankly, most of it is done by the same people. If you have time, we need you. If you have talents, we need you. If you love this congregation, we need you. If you are not a member, please consider joining us. Our dues are very reasonable compared to many congregations, but we need them to continue. Please, be as generous as you can, with your money or your time to make sure that both our building and our congregation don’t just survive, but thrive.

Robin Bass
President, RTPV Board


Shop at DeCicco’s – Help RTPV!

We are very excited to announce a great and easy way to help out RTPV simply by buying groceries – and it won’t cost you a cent!
All you need to do is shop at DeCicco’s Market located at 3651 Lee Rd, Jefferson Valley (opposite the JV Mall). When you check out just tell the cashier  that you are participating in the rebate program for the Reform Temple of Putnam Valley. The cashier will look up the applicable code and enter it. Simply by doing that, our Temple will get a percentage of whatever the cost of your purchase is. No extra cost to you but a great benefit to us.
We hope that you all take advantage of this opportunity and thank you in advance for your help.
