Shavuot 2015


 

 


Late Sunday night, December 15, 2013, the roof over Temple Israel's social hall caved in.

We are grateful that no one was in the building at the time and there were no injuries.  Fortunately, the Sanctuary was unharmed. Our leadership is making plans to repair the damage as quickly as possible. Our thanks for the community's tremendous support.

The Temple Israel Tzedakah Quilters

The Temple Israel Tzedakah Quilters was formed last September. We have six active members and a few who come when they are able.

We have been meeting at the JCC in the library on Wed. afternoons at 1pm.

We have made about 30 quilts so far. They are distributed to hospitals, nursing homes, cancer units, neonatal units, shelters and the homeless by a group called The Caring Quilters Project.

We welcome any quilters who would like to join us. The group has lots of fabrics and some tools. Each member uses her own sewing machine.

Anyone interested in joining please contact Sandy Paston at 607-217-4038.

SHABBAT TRAVELS TO OUR ELDERLY
