Since 1982, Temple Bat Yam in South Lake Tahoe has been a destination for our resident and visiting Jewish family in the Tahoe Basin, the Eastern slope of the Sierras, and the Carson Valley. Our synagogue, located on nearly six beautiful acres of forest land, is a place of memories, lifelong learning, shared mountain recreation, inspiration and renewal. Storms come and storms go, and sharing our joys and sorrows carries us through them. Our celebration of Jewish life in our rugged mountain Jewish home is determined and meaningful.
Our shared commitment to each other and our Jewish life now needs to be applied to sustain our physical infrastructure. Our driveway and parking lot are seasonal hazards, the old sections of building lose more roofing tiles with every storm, and our old, inefficient gas furnaces need to be replaced. Patch and seal as a maintenance strategy is no longer responsible; we need to excavate and replace.
With this in mind, TBY’s Board of Directors is embarking on a capital funding campaign for current building needs and maintenance reserves. For this budget year (July 2019-June 2020), we have set a goal to raise $125,000. So far, we have already received donations and pledges totaling $63,100, or roughly 50% of our goal. Related to the Capital Campaign, we have received one very generous member family’s commitment to fund replacement of the two furnaces.
As you are able, please consider donating a bit extra to be a part of the effort to sustain TBY with the much-needed repair and maintenance.
