Goodness Grows at CSAIR!

Progress

$

 

Dear Congregation,

As you know, the annual gala is a tradition that brings us together to celebrate and support our community. It is a party. It is time to acknowledge contributions. And it is a time to focus on CSAIR’s growth. Everyone is welcome to attend, whether you buy a ticket or not. 

Support the Shul - Support the 2023 Gala

The funds raised through the 2023 Gala will support CSAIR's general operating expenses. This type of unrestricted giving enables our leadership to allocate funds based on the needs of our synagogue.  Our goal this year is to raise $75,000.

I Have a Plan to Celebrate

We look forward to meeting everyone where they are when it comes to comfort with a large gathering. 
You are welcome to attend the portions of the gala that you would like! Of course, we know that things will change between now and the Gala, and that is okay too.  We ask that you take your best guess as to what you would like to do on February 5th now, and we can always make amendments later! The Gala Committee will follow all CSAIR Covid guidelines at the time of the event. That said, your celebration options are as follows:

Celebrate Fully in Person

  • 4:30-5:45 PM: Partake in a buffet dinner - Masking optional.

  • 6:00- 6:15 PM: Begin to move to seats to begin the program.

  • 6:15- 7:45 PM: Program and Maariv (celebrating our honorees) - A section where masks will be required will be available in the sanctuary for those who feel more comfortable sitting exclusively with masked people. Masks otherwise will be optional in the rest of the sanctuary. Dessert and coffee/tea are served following the program! Schmoozing as the celebration continues - Masking optional.

Celebrate Partially in Person
(For those who would prefer to avoid communal eating) 

  • 6:00- 6:15 PM: Arrival time

  • 6:15- 7:45 PM: Program (celebrating our honorees) followed by Maariv (evening service). Note: A mask-only section will be available in the Sanctuary for those who feel more comfortable sitting exclusively with masked people. Masks will be optional in the rest of the Sanctuary.

Fully Remote

  • 6:15- 7:45 PM: Join us on live stream for the program and Maariv.

The program will start at approximately 6:00 PM and last until 7:30 PM with dessert to follow. The following choices are available for you on the registration form

  • I will attend and dine in person.

  • I would like 100% of my donation to go to CSAIR so I do not need to dine at the gala but plan to attend the gala in person.

  • I would like 100% of my donation to go to CSAIR so I do not need to dine at the gala and intend on live streaming the gala.

That said, if you are not feeling well on February 5, please stay home and take care of yourself.  Celebrate with us at home via live stream.  Contact your doctor if that is appropriate.  We request this on your behalf and on behalf of the community.

Additional information can be found on our FAQ page.
