GivingTuesday was created in 2012 as a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good. Over the past seven years, it has grown into a global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity. Learn more at givingtuesday.org

Will my donations for Giving Tuesday count towards the Annual Appeal goals? (Is it tax-deductible?) 

The Giving Tuesday campaign is focused on helping Congregation Beth Emeth in one particular area, but is part of the overall Annual Appeal over and above the planned goal. Beth Emeth is a 501(c)(3) organization, thus gifts are generally tax-deductible. However, you should consult your attorney if you have any questions in this regard.
