If you haven't visited Stanton's new website, go to (same address as before) and check it out!
The new site has all the same info and capabilities of our old site plus a whole lot more -- including a more personalized user experience.

In order to take full advantage of our dynamic new site, each community member will get a private account, where you can update your contact information, add family members and lifecycle dates, keep track of your donations and payments to the shul, and more!
If we already have you in our directory, you should have received an email with all of the info you need to login and set up your account. If you did not receive that email and would like an account, please email and we'll get you set up!

Volunteering at Stanton

One of the many strengths of our shul is the variety and multiple talents and abilities of our congregants. It takes a lot to run our shul and our programming, and we can probably use your help. Are you a tech guru, web design aficionado, or social media wiz? A master event planner, fundraiser, or program coordinator? An accountant, lawyer, or investment professional? A trained carpenter, electrician, or contractor? If you have any of these or other skills, professional or amateur, that you'd like to contribute to Stanton, speak to Rabbi Bodner, Rivky Friedman, or another member of the board and let's think about how we can help make Stanton flourish together.

Planned Giving at Stanton

Looking for a way to give back to Stanton, not right now, but maybe at some point in the future? Consider planning a long-term gift to the shul. We encourage anyone interested in discussing various ways to plan a gift now that will be given in the future to contact Board members Michael Gordon or Rivky Friedman, or Rabbi Bodner. There are many ways to go about planned giving and we are happy to discuss the various options that might work for you.
