TBS Giving Tuesday

This #GivingTuesday, put TBS on Your Chanukah List!

#GivingTuesday is the start of TBS’s annual Chanukah campaign – Put TBS on Your Chanukah List!  This is your opportunity to contribute to an exciting TBS renewal, including upgraded classroom technology and purchasing new cushioned folding chairs.  Just as Chanukah celebrates the re-dedication of the Holy Temple, the TBS community is invited to update and modernize our beloved Temple!


Our 2019 campaign goal is to raise $8,700 for TBS Chanukah gifts.  Here’s how it breaks down:

$2,700 = 75 new chairs

$6,000 = Classroom technology* for 3 classrooms ($2,000 per classroom)

*Classroom technology includes a high-resolution LED smart TV/computer monitor, a WiFi-enabled DVD/Blu-ray player, and a new laptop that enables teachers to share presentations, educational videos and movies, and other learning tools.


Our 2019 Put TBS on Your Chanukah List! campaign begins #GivingTuesday and runs through the last day of Chanukah: Monday, December 30.  Here’s what your gift buys for TBS!

$36 buys 1 chair

$72 buys 2 chairs

$180 buys 5 chairs

$200 buys 10% of classroom technology … if 10 families chipped in together, they could pay for 1 classroom!

$360 buys 10 chairs

$400 buys 20% of technology for 1 classroom

$1,000 buys 50% of technology for 1 classroom

$2,000 buys 100% of technology for 1 classroom or 75% of our new chairs

$2,700 buys 100% of our chairs!

Every act of generosity counts, and each means even more when we give together!
