JCOR sells grocery gift cards as a fundraiser for the congregation. You buy the cards, use them like credit cards to pay for your groceries, and the stores donate a portion of your purchase to the Congregation at no additional cost to you!

We sell cards for Earth Fare and Food City. Earth Fare donates 6% of your purchase to JCOR, and the others donate 5%. You can purchase cards from Hilary Shreter (865-457-7549)

If you have trouble connecting with a captain to purchase your cards, you can send an e­mail to Rita Hohenbrink at



Another of our ongoing fundraisers is selling leaves on our Tree of Life. Honor special occasions (new grandchildren, B’nai Mitzvah, marriages, graduations, your new car), honor the memory of your loved ones, or leave a permanent reminder of almost anything!

Prices are:
Small = $1,000;
Medium = $2,500;
Large = $3,500; and
Extra Large = $5,000.

Plaques on our Memorial Boards serve as permanent reminders of lost family members and loved ones. Their names will forever be spoken during Yizkor services.
