Thank You For Supporting Torah Of Awakening Bay Area!
All our online programs are sustained through membership dues and course fees.
However, our Bay Area community programming such as musical Shabbat services (Shabliss!), meditation groups, havurah gatherings and High Holy Days services are dependent on your generous contributions and donations.
(Scroll down to see a list of our accomplishments in 2017!)
Presently, we are able to receive tax deductible donations of $600 and up. For smaller than $600, we welcome your non-tax deductible contribution for Bay Area programming. Make your donation or contribution below. Thank you so much for your support!
For tax deductible donations of $600 or more, please fill out the form below and we'll be in touch about how you can donate:
Or, make a non-tax deductible contribution of less than $600 HERE.
Note from TOA Bay Director Laura Rifkin:
Here are our accomplishments this past year:
We produced the beautiful CD, “Ayn Od, music for Shabbat.”
We hosted numerous events: Havdallah gatherings, Shabbatons
We had our second successful High Holidays on the Farm in collaboration with Urban Adamah.
We strengthened our infrastructure.
Reb Brian and I led our first cohort of year-long learning in the Bay Area.
Brian launched a number of online classes and a B’nai Mitzvah program.
We co-sponsored public programs with Urban Adamah, Netivot Shalom, JeWitches, and Wilderness Torah.
The future promises to be very exciting:
We are in the process of planning seven Shabbatons with Reb Brian and BRIAH
We will hold two intimate “Shabbats in the House” for ToA members led by Jeannette Ferber, Gary Lapow, Ahbi Vernon, Bruce Silverman, and guest teachers.
We have ideas for a member-led book club, Shabbat dinners, regular get-togethers, information sessions on how to access ToA member benefits, continued spiritual learning in community and so much more!
We hope to produce our 2nd CD of High Holiday music (recorded live!).
We will expand and nurture our relationships with Urban Adamah, Netivot Shalom, and other partners.
We will be co-hosting our THIRD ANNUAL ToA High Holidays with Urban Adamah!
As you know, all of these activities take resources. Currently ToA Bay monthly memberships provide a portion of support. In March, we will do a major appeal for fundraising so that all of our myriad programs can continue.
We need all of your support to make Torah of Awakening in the Bay happen! Please consider making a year-end donation to help fund our programs. Donations over $600 will be tax-deductible. (Scroll Up to make donations)
