100 Days of Giving: Have some fun while you give back to the Beth Torah community. Join this year’s 100 Days of Giving campaign to raise $10,000. This campaign supports Excellence in Programming: our music program, membership events, adult education, weekly nosh, oneg, Sunday breakfast and more. Buy a day for $100 and let us know what you are celebrating, or commemorating. Once the day is purchased, it’s gone. You’ll have to look for another date. The campaign opens this year on November 23, 2018, the day after Thanksgiving (affectionately known as Black Friday), and runs for 100 days, with the last day on March 2, 2019. Take a look at your calendars, and see what personal or family milestones you’d like to celebrate during those days. Or take a look at some of the fun holidays that occur:

  • January 15th –National Bagel Day
  • February 17th – Random Act of Kindness Day
  • March 2nd – Dr. Seuss Day.

Call the office, or fill out a form in the ulam next time you are in the building, and we’ll reserve the day for you. You can decorate your day on the big calendar which will go up in the ulam later this month, and expect to see your day commemorated on the Beth Torah FaceBook page. Buy multiple days if you are so inspired—each day costs $100, as before. Thanks for sharing in the fun.
