Fall Fling
Thursday, Nov. 8, 2018
Fall Fling offered the chance  to meet up with your friends for wine, a brand new dinner menu with Jewish foods from around the world and unique shopping for apparel, jewelry, cosmetics, home decor and gifts.
Attendees brought hygiene products, new and gently used bras, and new underwear to support Dignity Matters. With access to feminine hygiene products and underwear, women and girls who are homeless or otherwise in need stay healthy, stay in school and in work, and, in turn, regain their self-confidence and live with basic dignity.

Sisterhood fundraising supports our temple’s youth engagement, inclusion for children with learning differences in our education programs, and Families with Young Children (FwYC) initiatives. The community-wide Rummage Sale and your donations at the Fall Fling provided $16,000 last year.
