We are holding this event at a member’s house as we transition to our new space. Please e-mail for details.

Join us as religious school families and our larger temple community come together to do social action projects that give back to the larger Lowell community:

  1. We will attempt to make 200 cards of friendship to be included in the bagged lunches at our January lunchbag assembly.
  2. You can also chose to knit hats or learn to knit hats for guests at the Lowell Transitional Living Center.
  3. And lastly, you can help braid strips of fleece to make chew toys for dogs at a local shelter.

We will also be having a pizza lunch (donations welcome). Hope you can join us!
