Micro Fundraiser, Save the Walls!

Help us Save the Walls of the Havurah House.

Endorsed by a small art subcommittee, Havurah is launching a micro-fundraising campaign to purchase a framed print for the vestibule of the Havurah House. (Learn more about the proposed piece below.)

What’s this micro-fundraising business?

By Next Friday, April 3rd, the first night of Passover, we hope to raise $150 in small donations from Havurah members, families, grandparents, children, and friends.

Every donation of at least $5 will be honored on a descriptive label that will accompany the print.

To make your tax deductible donation, email Rebekah Irwin with the following details:

1. The dollar amount you would like to donate
2. Your name, or your designated honorees, as you would like them listed

And now, about the art itself:

Your donation will help bring an archival-quality framed reproduction (pictured below) of Mountains and Sea, painted in 1952 by Helen Frankenthaler (1928-2011). Frankenthaler, an American Jewish artist born in New York City, attended Bennington College in Vermont. Mountains and Sea, considered one of her best known works, is in the permanent collection of the National Gallery of Art and is over seven feet tall by 10 feet long (our framed print will be a cozy 18 x 26 inches). Read her New York Times obituary here.
