Israeli Tomato Seedlings
We’re sure you’ve heard of buying trees in Israel… Sisterhood is putting a twist on that and you can buy Israeli tomatoes in San Diego! These Cherry and Grape Tomato seedlings (small plants) are grown locally from seeds developed in Israel by Hazera Genetics (they use conventional cross-breeding; no GMO). Prime tomato season is starting and there are many months ahead for you to grow and enjoy the tasty treats. Get some for yourself and some for friends and neighbors. You can grow them in your garden or in a pot!
We are offering seedlings for a donation: 1 for $5 or 3 for $10. Your donation will help to raise awareness of Israel’s advancements in agriculture which it generously shares with the world and will fund Sisterhood’s ongoing support of our synagogue!
Get your seedlings now! The local pickup location will be emailed to you.
We hope you will enjoy the tomatoes as you think of Israel!
Please email Sisterhood if you have any questions.
Count Your Blessings
The challenges of 2020 have been extraordinary for many of us. Despite it all, we still have many reasons to count our blessings. We have taken to calling it silver linings. Studies have shown that experiencing gratitude is good for the heart. It may help you sleep better and gives you a better sense of well-being.
Tifereth Israel Sisterhood’s ‘Count Your Blessings’ fundraiser is an opportunity to show your gratitude and help our Sisterhood and synagogue with much needed funds.
Please take a moment to look through the following blessings and pick the ones that speak to you. Each blessing has a suggested donation of $5, but any amount would be greatly appreciated.
The funds raised will help Sisterhood continue the work we do for our synagogue and our schools. It will also allow Sisterhood to continue to offer educational programs, social action projects, and to foster Jewish values.
Sisterhood thanks you for your kindness and your participation in this touching fundraiser. May your heart and home continue to be filled with blessings beyond measure.

Tikkun Olam Club
Help Us Repair the Community
The purpose of the Tikkun Olam Club is to bring together adults within our community who share an interest in “repairing the world.” Throughout the year, Sisterhood participates in projects that seek to remedy and address various needs within the community. Hunger is a priority need. Through the Tikkun Olam Club program, we hope to build interfaith participation in addressing vital community needs.
Tikkun Olam Club members receive a package of benefits including:
- Invitations to participate in community events and Sisterhood social action projects.
- A Passport Unlimited Dining Card dining card during your membership year, good for 2 for 2:1 entrees at hundreds of fine dining establishments throughout San Diego, in many U.S. cities and in Canada. Enjoy dining, shopping and traveling with your new card.
- Other special benefits that may be available during the year.
A Tikkun Olam membership alone does not carry the rights and privileges that come with a traditional Sisterhood membership, unless it is purchased along with or in addition to a regular membership package.
For more information about the Tikkun Olam Club, email us at email@example.com.
Sisterhood tributes are a great way to show appreciation for a friend or loved one and support Sisterhood at the same time. Remember to send Sisterhood tributes for all of your simchas or memorials.
