Chai Celebration Fundraiser

Eighteen years ago, Congregation Tiferet Israel became an incorporated entity in the State of Texas.  To celebrate this important milestone, occurring in this unusual year, we have planned a VERY SPECIAL fundraiser!

YOU CHOOSE YOUR OWN PARTY!

Choose from fourteen differently-themed small group "parties," between January 16-26, 2021.  Some in person, some online — this series of events are an opportunity to engage, celebrate and support, culminating in a Tu B'Shevat seder, open to all CTI members and friends, the evening of January 27th.  Donations of $136 per adult and $18 per child (5-17), entitle donors to a "ticket" to one event.

Sponsorships are also available at different levels. (See table following.)

All funds raised will serve to financially strengthen our community, with the highest sponsorships enabling the acquisition of important items for our Torahs and Aron Kodesh. 

Level Donation # of tickets included¹
Titanium² $10,000 10 plus dedication of new High Holiday Parochet
Platinum³ $5,400 10 plus dedication of new Torah Crown
Gold $3,600 10
Silver $1,800 8
Bronze $540 5

¹ Tickets may be used by family members or given to non-CTI families
² A maximum of 1 Titanium Sponsorship is available
³ A maximum of 2 Platinum Sponsorships are available
