Giving Tuesday

When the shopping ends, the giving begins.

Tuesday, December 3 is the day!
#GivingTuesday is our #OpenDoors Day!

Three generous congregants are matching all online gifts to our Open Doors Appeal on Tuesday, December 3, dollar for dollar up to $3,600. Click here to donate and make your gift go twice as far!

Your gift on #GivingTuesday (and throughout December) keeps our sacred community a place for all our families to call home. Your generosity as 2019 draws to a close helps keep our doors open wide and filled with an audacious welcome for all those who seek a meaningful, inclusive Jewish life. Thank you!

Three things to do today to make the world a better place:

1. Give to our Open Doors campaign to support our welcoming community, which provides a place for all those who seek a meaningful, inclusive Jewish life;
2. Perform a mitzvah – help someone between the time you wake up and noon today. Post your act of kindness/support with hashtag #GivingTuesday on your social media or add your comment to our temple FB page;
3. Give to at least one other charitable organization today, on Giving Tuesday.

Together we will repair our world, minute by minute, hour by hour, day by day.

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!
