Healthy Air Project – Can We Count on You?

What Makes THOI special? You do! That’s why we’ve begun an extensive project that will upgrade or improve HVAC and related systems’ components to address recurring mold and mildew challenges.  These efforts include:  replacing the Sanctuary’s HVAC system, removing asbestos-wrapped ductwork, erecting a vapor barrier, putting floor insulation in the Sanctuary and social hall, and installing a dehumidifier and air treatment systems.   

At THOI, we practice pikuach nefesh, the Jewish value of protecting human life.  We want to ensure that Members, family, and visitors can enjoy a healthy and safe environment to worship and engage.  The THOI Boards of Directors and Trustees felt it was imperative to get started immediately, with the goal of having this work complete before the High Holy Days.                     

But it will take a community to help make this happen.  We appreciate and are grateful for your support, no matter the amount, that will help in covering the costs for this wide-ranging project.  Thanks to a generous 2:1 match of $100,000 from an anonymous donor, your contribution will automatically TRIPLE in size! But this offer is good only through December 31, 2022.
