We Did It!

A Home for the Future of Judaism

Our Capital Campaign to build A Home for the Future of Judaism has ended, and we made our goal of $16,000,000! What a ride it has been!

Thank you to the 1,118 members who pledged, made gifts and brought us to this happy conclusion. We set out with a vision and an ambitious goal, and together we did it. The majority of our congregation participated in this enormous undertaking: a truly communal achievement. Thank you!

What a generous, responsive and responsible community we have! So very grateful for all the gifts – small, large and in between – that brought us to this shehechyanu moment.

TRS Tents

TRS Tents is an innovative way to help our members connect with each other and enjoy shared interests and activities. Any TRS member can propose a Tent activity or participate in one.

New groups have recently formed for amateur genealogists, writers, and photographers. As members come up with new and different Tent ideas, more groups are forming all the time. Check your weekly Temple e-letter and Connection to learn of new opportunities to participate.

Do you have a great idea for a Tent? Contact Cookie Mandell, Director of Membership Engagement, by email to share your idea!
