Support Cantor Kliger's Vision

Music sets the tone and rhythm for our Jewish lives. Joyous when we celebrate. Comforting when we are in need. Cantor Kliger’s vision is to elevate our musical and musical worship experiences at PTS by offering outstanding music more often, including a Shabbat band on the bimah twice a month, more frequent artists in residence, top-notch Purim Shpiels, and other interactive musical programs. 

In honor of Cantor Kliger’s installation, show your support for Cantor Kliger’s vision by sponsoring music at PTS. Our goal is to raise $250,000. Here's an example of what your contribution can do:

$100,000     Sustain outstanding music at PTS
$25,000   One year of Shabbat bands or audio tech staffing
$15,000   Artist-in-residence for one weekend
$5,000   Special guest for an evening
$1,800   Shabbat band for two Friday nights
$1,000   Audio tech for a special program
$500   Staff for a rehearsal

» A gift of any amount is welcome and appreciated. If it’s meaningful to you, it is meaningful to the community.
» For instructions on donating via stock or donor advised fund, please go to
» If you have questions, feel free to contact Karen Wisialowski for a conversation.
