Rabbi skied 50 runs in one day; temple donates to Tahoe Youth & Family

As part of any fundraising event, Temple Bat Yam’s board of directors decided that a portion of money raised should always go to another local community organization that does good works. This year TBY donated $500 of the proceeds of their fundraiser to Tahoe Youth and Family Services.

The winter’s event, called “Purim in the Powder,” challenged skiers to get pledges from members of the community, some receiving “pledges per run skied.” Around 15 people participated as skiers and 40 people made pledges. Both downhill and cross country skiers participated. Rabbi Jonathan Freirich succeeded in his goal of completing 50 runs in a single day. This is the first event of this kind sponsored by the Temple Bat Yam community, who are committed to helping others in the community as well as their own members.

The next event that is planned is a biking event related to the Tour de Tahoe in September. For more information on these events or anything about the activities of Temple Bat Yam, call Freirich at (775) 588-4503; e-mail rabbijonathan@ yahoo.com; or check the Web site at http://www.templebatyamtahoe.org.
