Jewish Disability Advocacy Month:
February is Jewish Disability Advocacy Month. There are a number of workshops in the attached document which may interest you. Judith and Ruth suggest that you try and attend some of the sessions and at the end of the month we can have a conversation on strategies we can use at the temple to improve what we do. For information and to register, follow this link: jewishtogether.org/JDAM
Because of the changing Provincial health regulations regarding funerals, the Chesed Shel Emes will be providing volunteer pallbearers for all Jewish funerals for the foreseeable future. If you are interested in volunteering, please call the Chesed Shel Emes at 204-582-5088.
Temple Shalom Crafternoon Thursday, January 21, 2021
This week co-president Judith Huebner is inviting you into her weaving studio for a tour, a brief explanation of the art and craft of weaving and a presentation highlighting some of her work. There will also be plenty of time for questions and conversation. Judith has been weaving on-and-off for several decades, in that time she has woven a variety items including scarves, towels, blankets, placemats and 2 Torah covers for Temple Shalom and participated in several fundraising craft sales at the Temple. She is currently the secretary of the Manitoba Guild of Weavers. She says the combination of retirement and COVID restrictions has really encouraged her to amp up her weaving. Please join us this Thursday.
