Giving Opportunities

Kol Nidre Appeal

Funds donated each year during the High Holidays enable the synagogue to remain financially stable and secure while continuing to provide members with outstanding worship, educational and social opportunities. Support for the Kol Nidre appeal also ensures that no congregant is turned away because of financial need.

Capital Campaign

Investing in Our Future: The Campaign for Congregation Tifereth Israel

To perpetuate our strong drive to endure and better serve our congregants, Congregation Tifereth Israel recently initiated an extensive modernization of our physical facility, reflecting our:

  • Spirit of innovation
  • Vitality and warmth
  • The openness of our all-inclusive, spiritual community
  • Our deep commitment to saving energy

For well over a century- through favorable and challenging times, simchas and heartbreaks- CTI has been there for us. We want it to be there for our children.

While the past has given us our rich heritage, the future belongs to the next generation and beyond. We have a deep-seated sense of continuity and a profound commitment to the future. The goal of our Capital Campaign is to raise funds in support of the ongoing, necessary upgrades so we can all take pleasure in sustaining a beautiful, energy-efficient home for our children and exceptional congregation.

CTI has made extraordinary progress over the past few years, and we continue to move forward with vigor. We encourage you to join and support what promises to be a most exciting journey.

Planned Giving

A planned gift is any major gift, made in lifetime or at death as part of a donor's overall financial aid and/or estate planning.

Rabbi's Discretionary Fund

This fund supports charitable, congregational and/or professional needs, as determined by the Rabbi.

Life-Cycle Occasion Contributions

Making a donation to CTI is a wonderful way to acknowledge a birthday, anniversary, Bar/Bat Mitzvah, birth of a baby, moving to a new home or any other happy occasion. It is also a meaningful way to honor the memory of someone who has recently passed away. These funds support the synagogue's  general programming and operations.
