ORDER A TREE OF LIFE LEAF OR ROCK
Have you noticed our “Tree of Life” at CKI on the wood-paneled wall with the engraved leaves and rocks? It has been there since the 1950's, and is a great way for us to help CKI raise funds while getting something special in return that will last for many, many years. For $100 per leaf you can honor a teacher or special mentor, acknowledge the birth of a new baby, a birthday, wedding, anniversary, bar/bat mitzvah, Hanukah gift, or any type of celebration. Of course this is also a perfect way to memorialize the loved ones we have lost. For those of you who would like to make a donation of $1,000, CKI will purchase more bronze rocks for engraving. To make this fundraiser even more affordable, consider “chipping in” with other congregants to purchase a rock or leaf. Any amount is helpful to our synagogue!
My goal is to sell the existing leaves and new rocks, and then re-design and enlarge the tree so this tradition can continue for many years. Attached you will see some examples of our existing tree, leaves and rocks, and an option for how a new “grove of trees” might look. Wouldn’t it be thrilling to sell all the leaves/rocks and have to order more, while continuing this fundraiser as a permanent display and something to be proud of at CKI for generations to come? That is my wish, so I hope you will join me in making this happen!
Thanks so much in advance for your support
