We are so happy to announce that the Rhinebeck Jewish Center is now part of Amazon Smile – as per Joel Weisbrod’s suggestion!
Shopping with Amazon smile is a great and easy way to support the RJC at no cost to you! Here’s a little more information to help you understand; it’s actually really simple!
What is AmazonSmile?
AmazonSmile is a simple and automatic way for you to support your favorite charitable organization(The RJC of course!) every time you shop, at no cost to you. When you shop at smile.amazon.com, you’ll find the exact same low prices, vast selection and convenient shopping experience as Amazon.com, with the added bonus that Amazon will donate a portion of the purchase price to the RJC.
How do I shop at AmazonSmile?
To shop at AmazonSmile simply go to smile.amazon.com from the web browser on your computer or mobile device. You may also want to add a bookmark to AmazonSmile to make it even easier to return and start your shopping at AmazonSmile.
Can I use my existing Amazon.com account on AmazonSmile?
Yes, you use the same account on Amazon.com and AmazonSmile. Your shopping cart, Wish List, wedding or baby registry, and other account settings are also the same.
How do I select the RJC as my charitable organization to support when shopping on AmazonSmile?
On your first visit to AmazonSmile, you need to select the RJC as a charitable organization to receive donations from eligible purchases before you begin shopping. We will remember your selection, and then every eligible purchase you make on AmazonSmile will result in a donation.
How much of my purchase does Amazon donate?
The AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the purchase price from your eligible AmazonSmile purchases.
We are so grateful for your past, present and future support to the RJC. We hope you will integrate AmazonSmile into your shopping habits to support us. As always, we look forward to serving you in any way we can and for many more years.
Rabbi Hanoch and Tzivie Hecht
