Women of Jeremiah offers a variety of avenues to help those in need. Various programs take place each year, resulting in charitable contributions to many fine organizations.
- Proceeds from sales of the annual High Holy Day Challah Sale go to MAZON: A Jewish Response to Hunger.
- The High Holy Day Food Drive more than fills the ARK's trailer each year.
- Women of Jeremiah's Chanukah Mitzvah Project, the "Wish Tag Program," generates gifts for clients of the Jewish Child and Family Services and The ARK during the holiday season.
- The sale of a cookbook raised funds for software at the Waukegan School District, as part of Temple Jeremiah's campaign to benefit the students there.
- Our Annual Women's Seder supports SHALVA, an agency which works to prevent domestic abuse in Jewish households.
Please join us and be a part of this very unique and involved community within the Temple Jeremiah family. We warmly welcome anyone who wants to play a part -- small or large -- in this outstanding group of women.
If you do not choose to actively participate in Sisterhood events, please support us by paying your dues and supporting our main fundraising effort -- the Temple Jeremiah Gift Shop. It's a wonderful place to find unique gifts for every occasion.
Please support us and help us continue in our mitzvah efforts and expanding our excellent programming.
