In Honour of ...
The Lord knows the days of the upright and their inheritance shall be for ever.  Psalm 37:18


From time to time, it is our privilege to receive contributions from individuals who give to honour a special person or commemorate a significant event.  Others give in memory of a loved one.  

Thank you!

What happens when I give to Chosen People Ministries in memory of a loved one or to commemorate a special person or event? 


We record your gift in our permanent files and on this page.  We also send you a tax deductible receipt (as appropriate) with our thanks!

As well, if you provide us with the contact information, we send a note to the family with our condolences or congratulations and acknowledging your gift (but not the amount).

If you choose to contribute to Jewish evangelism in this way, just advise us of your intent so that we can record and acknowledge your gift appropriately.
