- Discretionary Funds
Discretionary funds are funds of the temple that are under the control of the specific members of our clergy. These funds are to be used for the benefit of the congregation and such other purposes as: to assist congregants or other individuals in need; to fund other non-for-profit organizations, including Temple Sholom; to supplement customary synagogue expenses; to enable the purchase of items to be used by the clergy but which remain the property of the synagogue; and may not be used for the personal benefit of the staff member or his/her family.
