Industry Leading Bookkeeping & Accounting

Services for Your Congregation

As the only firm in the US that specializes in synagogue bookkeeping, we are uniquely qualified in all issues unique to synagogues, such as fund raising, clergy compensation, handling of third party payments and restricted fund accounting and reporting, to name but a few. Kesef has also created synagogue-specific services such as website donations and the emailing of statements, all with the thought in mind of providing members user-friendly payment portals in a PCI-compliant environment to increase synagogue collections and improve cash flow.

All of our services use secure, reliable technology and information is available to your authorized users from any computer in the world 24 hours per day. In addition you can call our staff of fully qualified bookkeepers during any regular business day to get the answers you need. Contact Kesef Accounting Service to find out how we can help you minimize risk, maximize time and reduce overhead.

We provide complete bookkeeping solutions for your congregation or non-profit organization. Each of our services can be right-sized to meet your specific needs and working preferences.
