It's been a long, trying year for our Temple Fund, with the 20% rent increase raising our expenses and the flailing economy depressing our incomes. However, this last month of our fiscal year members made a big push to get caught up, increase their pledges and make donations. Many, many people made efforts, and in the past two months we've reduced our shortfall by 75%, bringing our losses to just $321 for the year.
This is still a loss, make no mistake. One that will be more difficult to afford in the future. But given the economic circumstances of our city and nation, it is a testament to our devotion that we have worked together to enable us to continue to perform our rituals and promulgate the Law, no matter the circumstances.
