Capital Campaign


It has been an exciting process to move to our new building in Marquette, where we hope to better serve the Jewish community and visitors to the area.

Your financial help is making our synagogue accessible to all and bringing our building up to full working condition. It also means that we are able to offer a variety of programming and events to all.

As you may be aware, we ran into unexpected issues with the roof leaks and ceiling damage which led to higher renovation costs than originally expected. As a result, we applied for and were given a Hebrew Free Loan to cover those costs and keep our bills paid.


Our capital campaign continues as we pay down our Hebrew Free Loan which was to help pay for unexpected needs in the renovation process (roof and ceiling). Donations of any size are greatly appreciated!


The new building remodeling is still ongoing but is coming close to an end. The elevator is not quite up and running yet but should be soon. Most other things are minor but, all-in-all, the place is functional and ready for Pesach, the sanctification, and for you to come and see it.

We are seeking a $100,000 interest free loan to help assure we can pay our bills while pledge payments are coming due. We’d rather not rely on loans at all, so if you would like to contribute money to the capital campaign, we will gladly take it. We are still trying to sell the Ishpeming building. Money from that will be used to pay off the loan. So if you know someone looking for a building in a great location, let us know. Questions? Please contact Cary Gottlieb (

Update 2/12/18

We received a generous match donation offer of $32,400 (18x18x100). This must be matched in full before it can be cashed. This will help us meet some pressing needs in our new building costs. We are $3,400 away. Please contribute by sending your new donation with Attention: Match Offer to PO Box 482, Marquette, MI 49855.
