Spotlight on TRT's Program Funds
There are many times in our lives when we want to share our simchas, honor the memory of a loved one, and/or acknowledge someone special. A great way to show the love is by making a tax-free donation to one of TRT's special program funds. Each week in this column we will highlight a different program fund with the hope that you will feel inspired to support those who will benefit from the fund. 

This week's spotlight is on the Bolender Leadership Development Fund. This fund is used to encourage and develop Jewish leadership at TRT by providing financial subsidies to lay leaders for attendance at leadership development programs. This fund is in memory and in honor of those who perished in or survived the Holocaust.
