Tarbut v'Torah Gets $7 Million Toward New Campus
Even before beginning a public fundraising drive for $20 million -- the balance
needed to build the Samueli Jewish campus and Tarbut v'Torah high school in Irvine -- several local families lowered the hurdle by pledging a total of $7 million, says Gail Duner, a spokeswoman for the Samueli Jewish Campus Committee.
Ralph Stern, chairman of the committee, announced the pledges at a campaign kick-off event on March 30, Duner says. The 150 people invited heard the architect outline goals for the project, whose initial underwriters were an anonymous donor and Henry Samueli, co-founder of Irvine's Broadcom Corporation.
The remaining $13 million will be sought from the wider Jewish community through direct mail as well as solicitations by phone and to individuals beginning in May, Duner says.
