Days of Awe Torah Beautification Fund
Temple Israel Center has commissioned hand crafted Torah covers  beautifully designed by fabric artist Heather Stoltz  for our Days of Awe Torah scrolls, which will be completed in time to debut in the Milstein Sanctuary this Rosh Hashanah and will be used annually from the Days of Awe through Sim h at Torah.

We invite the community to donate to the Days of Awe Torah Beautification Fund in honor of or in memory of a loved one.  Donors who contribute $1,800 or more to the Fund by September 15 will be invited to participate in a special ceremony on the first day of Rosh Hashanah in the Milstein Sanctuary. These contributors' names will also be featured in a special display in the TIC building. All contributors' names will be featured in an upcoming edition of  H adashot.

Contributing is easy and can be done   here .
