Way & Means VPs
Everyone shops so why not support our Sisterhood and our congregation at the same time?
How many gift cards did you buy last year? Now you can buy them and benefit Sisterhood and Tifereth Israel Synagogue. Keep them on hand for birthdays, bridal and baby showers, graduations, teachers, and more.
But don’t stop there! You already know where you shop and what you shop for. Shop with gift cards. You can spend them like cash and we’ll receive a percentage of the face value. Without changing their shopping habits, an average family can generate hundreds of dollars a year and we will reap the benefits. That’s a significant donation!

You can purchase gift cards online or phone our office at (619) 697-6001. If the cards are available, you will be able to pick them up at the synagogue office within 48 hours. If for any reason the cards are not immediately available, we will notify you on the next business day after you place your order. Your cards will be ordered and you’ll be contacted (usually within 10 days) when your order is ready for pick-up. If you do not see your favorite vendor or have a special request, you may call the office or email us and we will contact Judy Gumbiner. Our Sisterhood’s gift card program is growing and we all want to support this effort which, in turn, supports our congregation.
The Passport Unlimited Dining Card
What is it? A Passport Dining card allows you to save at world-class restaurants with 2 for 1 entrées at most fine dining establishment in the network. You’ll receive your second entrée, compliments of the restaurant, on an unlimited basis.*
*The discount may not apply at certain restaurants on major holidays, such as Mothers Day, Valentines Day, etc. Call the restaurant in advance of making your holiday reservations to verify their acceptance of the Passport discount.
How it works: Your Passport Dining annual membership card grants you exclusive discounts at more than 850 fine dining establishments across the country. In San Diego alone, there are over 100 participating restaurants, including the Cohn Restaurant Group and Sammy’s Woodfired Pizza and Grill.
At the end of your meal, simply provide your card to your server, who will adjust the bill. Up to two (2) cards can be used at a table.
Your savings are applied discreetly, and your dining companions may never know that you’re a distinguished guest who receives special privileges. View a list of the participating restaurants here.
