Emanuel Stiching Ladies
During World War II, the Emanuel Congregation Stitching Ladies (formerly known as the Sewing Ladies) sewed for the Red Cross. Today, they knit, crochet, and sew such items as baby blankets, lapghans, sweaters, hats, scarves, mittens, booties, skirts, shawls, and ponchos. These items are donated to local hospitals, among them St. Joseph’s Hospital Neonatal and Adult Rehab units, Care for Real, Jewish Child and Family Services, Chicago Chesed Fund, and other social service agencies for their clients. We encourage knitters and crocheters to join us on Tuesday mornings from 9:00 am–12:30 pm at Emanuel Congregation, 5959 North Sheridan Road, Chicago. We supply the yarn; you supply the working hands!
Maot Chitim is the ancient custom of offering food to provide for the poor for the observance of holidays. Maot Chitim of Greater Chicago delivers food packages to over 5,000 area residents for Rosh Hashanah and Passover. Emanuel Congregation has participated in this seasonal mitzvah for over a dozen years. Contact the Emanuel office for more information regarding the next available Maot Chitim volunteer opportunity.
