Quick Tips for outbidding your friends!

  • Automatic Bidding: DON'T LOSE TRACK of the items you want. Once you place a bid you can set a "Max Bid Amount", which is only visible to you, and the system will automatically place the next incremental bid for that item. This setting can be deleted or changed at any time through your bidder account.  

  • 'Out Bid' Notifications: When you register just click the option to receive bidding notifications and you will be contacted by email or text when you have been outbid.


Items will be personally delivered to winning bidders in the Sacramento area. Small items will be mailed to those out of the area for an additional shipping fee.


For 39 years Kenesset Israel Torah Center has been the address for modern Orthodoxy in Sacramento. In these challenging times, KITC needs your support more than ever to be able to resume services, Shabbat meals, festive gatherings, educational offerings, and to once again b””h gather together. This will be an especially exciting year as we return together with Rabbi Evan, Kerry Rubin, and their family now part of our community. Please help us by making Evening in Eden 2021 our most successful yet!
