Raising Money

Fund raising drives are probably as old as synagogues and Temple Micah has had its share—including two major capital campaigns, one to build its home on Wisconsin Avenue and another to expand that building. And, of course, the synagogue has a dues structure and encourages members to make donations for a variety of purposes.

But the Micah community also likes to have fun while raising money. Thus, its major annual fund raiser is the Spring Auction, an evening of food, drink, music, fun and enticing people to purchase meals in each other’s homes, vacations at each other’s cottages, tickets to sporting events, concerts, etc. Micah is the home of many foodies and excellent cooks. So, Micah Cooks caters b’nai mitzvah luncheons, weddings, birthday and anniversary parties. With the food donated by the member-cooks, the group raises substantial sums for the temple. Another fun fund raiser was the Sukkot Fair, a giant yard sale with an open grill, games for kids and a magician.
