Sisterhood Judaica Shop Chanukah Celebration Honouring our Volunteers
Sunday, December 8, 2019, at 12:00 PM
Join Sisterhood in the Schwartz/Reisman Atrium to celebrate our renewed Judaica Shop, honour Hope Maissner, Mary Seldon, Pnina Margolese z”l and all of our shop volunteers, enjoy an early Chanukah celebration with latkes and more, and see and purchase our brand new Chanukah baskets and beautiful gift shop items!
All are welcome!
The Judaica Shop has always been a key element of the vision for Temple’s Schwartz/Reisman Atrium. Our vision has now become a reality: the Judaica Shop is beautiful, a magnet for visitors to the Atrium, and a source of meaningful elegant Judaica and other gifts. The Shop is also an inspiration for hundreds of little ones who pass through our renewed building.
How many of us have seen parents and grandparents explaining the mezuzah or the Chanukiah in the Shop window? That’s Jewish life here at Temple. Now in partnership with Renewal, Sisterhood is celebrating the beautiful, expanded and welcoming Judaica Shop while contributing to the completion of our Congregation’s Renewal Fundraising. A special donation opportunity has been created to honour the Judaica Shop and its volunteers who have ensured its enduring success over the decades, and to support Five to Finish. With a commitment to Renewal of $1,000 to $24,999, you can honour your favourite Sisterhood Judaica Shop volunteer on a plaque to be located right in the Shop. With a pledge $25,000 to $49,999, you can name a shelf in her honour, and for $50,000 and above, you can ensure her name appears on a window shelf facing the Atrium.
You can also support Sisterhood and Renewal by making a donation in your own name, to be honoured in the Shop. All pledges can be payable monthly, or annually, over a period of up to five years. If you wish to make a donation please contact Joan Garson, Chair Renewal Fundraising Committee at [email protected] or Jonathan Ain, Director Capital Campaign at [email protected].
In recognition of the many years of dedication to the Shop by Hope Maissner, Mary Seldon and Pnina Margolese z” l, Sisterhood is making its own donation to this programme to honour these wonderful women and their tireless efforts.
