2020 Blintzapalooza

Our 32nd Annual Blintzapalooza is on Sunday, March 22nd from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm. All are welcome! This event is open to the public. Cash and check only. No RSVP required. Please join us for this amazing fundraising event!

Blintzapalooza is TBH’s beloved annual community fundraiser. Each year, thousands of people come through the temple doors to purchase bagels, blintzes, and books. Usually on the last Sunday in March, Blintzapalooza is one of the ways that TBH fulfills the Jewish value of tzedakah, or charitable giving. Through tzedakah we work to create justice and fairness in our world and make Olympia a better place for all who live here.

Although we will continue to address the needs of our unhoused and street weary neighbors with gifts to St Vincent's Rent & Utility Assistance Program, hosted by St. Michael's Church, and our ongoing support of Interfaith Works, this year we will making a special effort to give life to the words of our sacred texts:

“You shall not oppress an immigrant/refugee, for you know the soul of the refugee, for you were refugees in the land of Egypt” (Ex.23:9).

“The immigrant/refugee who resides with you shall be to you as the home born; you shall love him as yourself, for you were refugees in the land of Egypt” (Lev.19:34).

“Adonai your G-d loves the immigrant/refugees residing among you, giving them sustenance. You too must love the immigrant/refugee, for you were foreign refugees in the land of Egypt” (Deut.10:19)

The bulk of the proceeds from the 2020 / 5780 Blintzapalooza will go to support the difficult work being performed by a network of attorneys and other legal professionals and staff that provides a meaningful voice and advocacy to those escaping oppression and worse; those who seek our nation’s historic promise of liberty and law in an increasingly hostile official environment.

All of the proceeds from the event benefit local nonprofit organizations. Since 1988, you have helped raise over $210,000 for over 50 projects and programs at 30 different local organizations doing good work in our community.
