AMBIANCE: Feel free to stay and schmooze like the old days, find old friends, make new ones.

DOING GOOD BY EATING WELL: Total net proceeds of Blintzapalooza, as always, go to support our tradition of Tikkun Olam, healing the world. We are reminded by our tradition that charity and justice are the same word: tzedakah.

Quixote Village "Tiny Home" Sponsorship

This year we are excited to take part in Quixote Communities' "Adopt a Tiny Home" project by sponsoring at least one and maybe more (depending on your appetite for blintzes) tiny homes in Quixote Village Olympia. This pioneering community of 30 small homes, with a central lodge building with common kitchen and shower facilities, has provided housing for dozens of persons through the years who previously lived in encampments in the Olympia area. Each sponsorship of $1500 helps maintain one of these homes for a year. Find out about this program and other ways you can help here

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.

All of the proceeds from the event benefit local nonprofit organizations. Since 1988, you have helped raise approximately $250,000 for over 50 projects and programs at 30 different local organizations doing good work in our community. 

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we were unable to hold this event in 2020, and in 2021 & 2022 we have returned in a limited capacity to sell frozen blintzes by the dozen. We look forward to holding our full event in-person once again in the future!
