Quilting for a good cause

by | Dec 1, 2017 | Other News

The generosity and good spirit of the Ohef Sholom Temple Tzedakah Quilting Group can be seen through Thursday, Dec. 14 at the Sandler Family Campus. That’s because the group’s quilts are on display, brightly decorating the Cardo. After the exhibit, Jewish Family Service will distribute the quilts to families and people in need for Hanukkah. The Quilting Group was established at Ohef Sholom in April 2015 and is comprised of 14 women who meet at the temple three times a month to create their beautiful masterpieces. Some have never worked on a quilt before and others are seasoned quilters. Together, they have created 31 quilts.

“Creating these Tzedakah Quilts gives me the pleasure of giving and receiving,” says Celia Friedman. “ I love hearing about and from the recipients of these gifts. I also enjoy getting to know and sew with the other quilters. I am truly amazed at each one’s source of knowledge and creativity.”

Visit the Simon Family JCC to see the display and if inspired, the group welcomes all skill levels to join. For more information on the Tzedakah Quilting Group, contact Ohef Sholom at 757-625-4295.
