We are now less than 2 weeks away from the drawing for the $10k Play for BK raffle. Thus far, 225 tickets have been sold, leaving 135 tickets waiting to be purchased. Now is the time for everyone who has not yet done so to purchase raffle tickets.


For the raffle campaign to successfully work as designed, all 360 tickets must be sold. To that end, we ask that everyone – in addition to purchasing as many tickets as possible – also reach out to their families, friends, neighbors and co-workers and ask them to participate as well.  As an added bonus, anyone who purchases (or arranges for the purchase by non-members of) 4 or more raffle tickets will be entered into a supplemental raffle drawing with a separate $1,000 cash prize.

This raffle also offers an excellent opportunity for North Woodmere residents who regularly attend BKNW – whether for minyanim during the week or on Shabbos, shiurim and other events – but are not yet members of the shul, to show their hakaras hatov and help us continue to provide a makom tefillah and makom torah that is open to the whole community.


Please click here for details and to purchase raffle tickets.
