Day for Girls

Sunday, January 13, 2019 • 7 Shevat 5779

1:00 PM - 6:00 PMAdas Israel Congregation


Days for Girls increases access to women's health care and education and encourages volunteer groups to sew reusable menstrual hygiene kits. We will be holding a kit-making day here at Adas Israel on Sunday, January 13th from 1-6pm. We are looking for people to bring (and operate) sewing machines, irons and ironing boards, but it's not necessary to have one of those to get involved....everyone's help is welcome! This program is being organized by one of Adas Israel's awesome teens, Shifra Waskow, and is being co-sponsored by the Adas Israel Community Mikvah.  The Mikvah is co-sponsoring this event with the intention of bringing dignity to women's cycles in other communities and shining a light on how the Mikvah brings meaning and spirituality to women's cycles in our community. You can check out the program website at www.daysforgirls.org. In addition to the measuring, ironing and sewing, we will also need help soliciting donations from fabric stores.  Please email Mikvah@adasisrael.org with any questions.
