Honoring our Heritage and Building our Future
November 29, 2021
I wanted to take this opportunity to update you on progress with our building project - Honoring our Heritage and Building our Future. This project is the most ambitious improvement project at our Temple since its construction in 1965. It will beautify, modernize, and substantially improve the entire first floor and part of the lower level of our Temple. It will ensure a safe, beautiful, and spiritual place for worship, study, life cycle and social events – not only for our generation, but for the next. L’dor Vador.
So far, we have raised $1.5M toward the project, including $450K pledged by our community members. How much we accomplish with this project depends on how much we raise. The minimum project is $1.8M. To accomplish important additional goals, we would need close to $2.4M.
We are in the process of reaching out to TTS families for help in meeting our goals. Please consider what the Temple means to you – beautiful services and life cycle events, innovative pre-school and religious school, adult education, and a variety of programming – and please pledge whatever is possible. To fulfill this mission, our Temple needs every family’s support. Pledges up to $10K can be spread over three years, and above $10K can be spread over five.
If you would like to discuss a pledge or have questions about any aspect of the project, please feel welcome to contact any one of us. We sincerely appreciate your helping us meet our goals to Honor our Heritage and Build our Future!
