DISABILITY INCLUSION SHABBAT
With guest speaker 
Beth Winslow-D'Amico

Led by Rabbi Alan Katz & co-led by Elise Wojciechowski
Friday, February 23rd at 6:00 PM
How do we recognize when someone is in need of support? How do you broach the topic of mental illness? What resources are available? Mental health and mental illness can be challenging topics to discuss. We will review some dos and don’ts when it comes to supporting someone who is struggling with their mental health or the mental health of a loved one.  


Visit the JDAIM page for more details on February's programming.

WOMEN'S CHAVURAH ANNUAL P.A.D. PARTY
Wednesday, February 28 at 7:00 PM

Since 2016, Temple Sinai has hosted a feminine hygiene kit-making party, which resulted in nearly 2000 kits being donated to numerous agencies in need of such products in the greater Rochester area. Last year, we packed over 500 kits, which were delivered locally to 6 community agencies.

Many underserved women and girls regularly miss work and school during their menstrual cycles. They can’t afford the necessary products needed for personal hygiene care. In response to this need, the National Council of Jewish Women’s local section developed the P.A.D. Project, which stands for Providing Access and Dignity to women and girls during their monthly cycles.
