Buy-Ins: 8 Fun Ways to Connect and Support Shomrei Torah

So What’s a “Buy-in” Anyway?
As part of our celebration of the tenth anniversary of our synagogue campus, we’ve created eight opportunities to participate in a unique activity, including a hike with Rabbi George, making a personal tallit, and a poker game amid jets in an aircraft hangar. Here’s how it works:

Attend the “Drinks and Desserts for a Decade” event on June 3, then sign up for one or more of the buy-ins on posters located at the event. (You might want to bring your calendar as the events are scheduled for various upcoming dates.) The fundraising buy-ins are priced from $20 to $200, with 100% of the proceeds benefiting Shomrei Torah programs.

That’s all there is to it; just attend, sign up, and have a blast!
