What Is TI DAY?  Schedule of Events Support TI Virtual Gala

Sunday, JUNE 7, 9:00 am - 9:00 pm

Virtual baking, board games, drive-by and dance parties - Join TI for a day filled with events celebrating Rabbi Seidel and the  community


TI DAY has something for everyone. With unique events throughout the day, it will give the community the chance to come together while we’re apart and express appreciation to Rabbi Seidel before he retires.

This day will celebrate the joy of TI's community, and was created in honor of Rabbi Seidel for his 28 years
of service to TI. In this time of social distancing,
it is more important than ever to come together as
a community, albeit virtually. Traditionally, TI holds a Spring Fling or Gala each year to gather together and raise money to support the synagogue.
This year, the Gala committee put together a day filled with some of things that encompass what the community will miss as Rabbi Seidel moves on – his text study and teaching, baking, juggling, and the warmth that he and Rachel have shared with all of us over the last 28 years.


Make TI DAY even more meaningful by participating in our Giving Challenges!
All events are completely FREE, but we hope you will donate to support ongoing programs and activities that make the TI community so special. All gifts will help move TI from “Strength to Strength.”

You can donate to one or more challenges any time before or during TI DAY and the Virtual Gala. Each gift will help unlock support from our matching gift challengers and increase funds for TI. Thank you for your generosity!  

New challenges may be added, so be sure to check back for more fun opportunities to support TI.

Virtual Gala

Put on your Zoom best (at least from the waist up!) and join together to celebrate the strong, caring, and wonderful community that is TI.

This is our chance to toast Rabbi Seidel and celebrate how much he’s given to TI as a whole and to each of us individually during his 28 years of leadership. The virtual gala will include toasts and tributes, a skit, and surprises you don’t want to miss. This special event will conclude our TI DAY in a communal TI way!
