TBO is the only South Florida Reform congregation not to have an annual membership fee, so the gala raises funds for its many programs.

“Our mission is to remove traditional barriers and welcome those to a spiritual, warm and welcoming Jewish community. We have a pledge based membership support system instead of a traditional annual dues structure,” said Feinstein.
