April Mitzvah Morning

April 30, 2023 - 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

April Mitzvah Morning
April 30
Location: B’nai Israel
For April’s Mitzvah Morning we will be making fleece isolette blankets for The Tiny Miracles Foundation. The blankets will then be distributed to local neonatal intensive care units and families of premature babies.
These blankets protect fragile preemies from the harsh lights and sounds of the hospital, while adding bright color to the NICU. Having a newborn in the NICU is very stressful for families and newborns, but these blankets help alleviate that stress while providing comfort when it is needed most.

This is a great, hands-on mitzvah activity for congregants of all ages. No sewing skills required! Just cutting and knotting fleece — it’s easy and fun.
If you have good scissors, please bring them to the event. If not, some will be provided.
Sign up to participate through the link in Hashavua or on the Temple website. Feel free to email Nina Silberman
