At B’nai Tivkah, in addition to supporting the synagogue through our dues and donations, we actively raise funds through both fun events such as our annual gala, as well as value-added programs, where the fundraiser benefits both the synagogue and supporter, such as our Internet Gift Card Program.
Here are a list of our programs and the appropriate contact person. Have a suggestion for a fundraiser? Contact our VPs of Ways and Means, Marc Rosen moc.l1511431474oa@781511431474185rc1511431474ram1511431474 or Craig Cohen moc.o1511431474ohay@15114314741002e1511431474bergb1511431474p1511431474.

Our Supporting Organizations
Our Sisterhood conducts several fundraisers throughout the year to supplement not only their programming but programs in the synagogue as well. For example, the synagogue provides funds for youth scholarships to encampment, synagogue-wide Israel program and makes an allocation to the synagogue budget each year. Here are some of the Sisterhood’s ongoing fundraisers:
Bimah Baskets – decorate the bimah on your simchah with two beautiful baskets! A portion of the money you give Sisterhood for these baskets will be donated to a charity of your choosing. Contact Jill Eisner moc.l1511431474oa@en1511431474sieij1511431474 with questions.
Mazel Tosses – toss little pouches of candy during your simcah. Sisterhood will provide lovely individually wrapped kosher candies for your use. Contact Jill Eisner moc.l1511431474oa@en1511431474sieij1511431474 with questions.
