Temple Shir Tikva Loyalty Circle

We are proud to introduce the new Temple Shir Tikva Loyalty Circle. Debuting alongside our existing Koach Leadership Circle, the Loyalty Circle honors the commitment and generosity of our members who, year after year, have consistently contributed $1,000 or more to the Annual Fund. This new program recognizes the loyalty of these members who have generously supported the Temple with a gift of $1,000 or more to the Annual Fund each year for the past three, five, or ten or more consecutive fiscal years, through the creation of three loyalty recognition levels:

Chaverim (Friends) Level
Chalutzim (Pioneers) Level
Shutafim (Partners) Level

Three consecutive years
Five consecutive years
Ten or more consecutive years

We are grateful for all our dedicated members who have demonstrated their commitment to support Temple Shir Tikva every year.

To become a member of the Loyalty Circle, make a gift of $1,000 or more to the TST Annual Fund three or more years in a row. To maintain your Loyalty Circle membership, continue to give $1,000 or more each year to the Annual Fund. Consecutive years of giving are counted by fiscal year, which runs from July 1 to June 30.

We gratefully acknowledge the inaugural members of the Temple Shir Tikva Loyalty Circle:​
