A Special Thank You to Congregation Shir Tikvah
From the inception of the Eastside Jewish Commons initiative, Congregation Shir Tikvah and its Steering Committee have provided inspiration, vision, financial investment, long-term commitment and institutional support. As we prepare to establish Eastside Jewish Commons as an independent non-profit, CST has been serving as our fiscal agent. On behalf of the Steering Committee, thank you to Congregation Shir Tikvah for your partnership.
