Bookkeeping and Accounting Services
We are a full service bookkeeping firm that can handle every facet of your organization’s needs. The level of service can be set so that you do not contract for services that your organization can do for itself, but we offer a set of services that is broad enough that it fills the gaps in your existing financial reporting function.

We can convert you from whatever general ledger you are currently using to QuickBooks.
We can also assist you with your automated conversion from whatever MMR system you are using to either Chaverware, ShulCloud or MM 2000.
Other Consulting Services
We can assist you with synagogue specific issues that surround topics like fundraising, parsonage, billing practices and discretionary funds. We can also assist you with setting up your chart of accounts, restricted fund accounting, linking your MMR system to your general ledger and preparing for an audit, to name a few issues.
What some of our clients say about working with us:
Kesef knows the accounting side of not-for-profits. They’ve gotten us to look at our processes in ways we never did before. We now have financial controls that we didn’t even realize we needed.Scott Allen
Moving to Kesef saved the congregation considerably over the prior staffing structure. The initial all-in-cost-per-household run-rate dropped by 30% with the move to Kesef.Amy E. Rubin
Kesef has really helped us transform our accounts payable. Now there are no more late payments, and no out-of-the-way trips just to review and approve bills.Leisa Sarecky
