Monroeville synagogue to throw ‘Cash Bash’ fundraiser in November

A synagogue in Monroeville is throwing a “Cash Bash” in November to help raise money for itself as part of an ongoing 60 th year anniversary celebration.

The fundraiser will take place from 6 to 9 p.m. Nov. 10 at Temple David, 4415 Northern Pike. The cost is $38, which includes admission and heavy appetizers. Alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks will be available for additional purchase. Children under 10 are free.

The synagogue’s fundraising chair, Jessica Raithel, said the party will include a dance floor and DJ.

“It’ll be a dance party type atmosphere,” she said. “Also, you don’t have to present to win things.”

The fundraiser will feature cash prizes up to $300 and Penguin memorabilia. There will also be a $100 winner announced every 15 minutes.

The event is open to the public. To purchase tickets and reserve your spot, call Temple David at 412-372-1200.

Temple David will also host the following events to celebrate the synagogue’s 60th year in Monroeville:

• Erev Shabbat Service — 7:30 p.m. Oct. 19. The service will feature a time to reflect on when its congregants became members there. Participants are encouraged to share a sentence about what was happening in the world or in their life at that time.

• Shabbat Morning Service — 10 a.m. Oct. 20. The service will feature a special aliyot, a reading from the Jewish Torah and sermon by Rabbi Jason Edelstein entitled “Stop, Look, and Listen — A Jewish Reality.”

• 60th Anniversary Party — 6:30 p.m. Oct. 20. The event will feature food and music. Attendants are asked to RSVP with the temple and will have a BYOB policy. A $9 donation is suggested per person and $36 per family. There is no charge for children 4 and under.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
