Goldberg Cleanup Day
Sunday, September 18, 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

This special day is named after Marcia and Jeremy Goldbergz'l", who led and supported the TI community for many years, and whose children, Eliot and Devra, continue this tradition of generosity today. To honor their memory, we come together each year before Rosh Hashana to help make the building, Sanctuary and grounds sparkle before the High Holidays. No pre-registration required. All ages and abilities welcome, snacks provided!

Empty Your Pockets Campaign: Homes for our Troops
Sponsored by the Social Action Committee

Each year, the Social Action Committee selects a charity, and encourages TI members to "empty their pockets" on their way into the synagogue for Kil Nidre services. This year, we will empty our pockets for Homes for our Troops, whose mission is to build and donate specially adapted custom homes nationwide for severely injured post-9/11 Veterans, to enable them to rebuild their lives.

Can't volunteer for the High Holidays but still want to help? There are always opportunities to volunteer throughout the year.
Contact Jevera Temsky if you want to learn more about volunteering at TI.
