“Dignity Grows” Packing Party in partnership with the Federation for Jewish Philanthropy of Upper Fairfield County and Schoke Jewish Family Service

Help us make period poverty a problem of the past! The newly launched “Dignity Grows” program of our Federation for Jewish Philanthropy aims to support women, girls, and individuals assigned female at birth who lack the resources to afford basic, feminine hygiene necessities. At our Rosh Chodesh packing party, we’ll learn about the ubiquity of period poverty, assemble tote bags filled with feminine products, and explore some of Judaism’s various perspectives on periods, menstrual taboos, red tents, and more. The bags we assemble will go directly to our CBI/Schoke JFS Food Pantry recipients.

Packing party participants are asked to underwrite the cost of one or two tote bags, at $10/bag. To participate, please send an email to Chris Rocha at by March 3, letting her know how many bags you would like to underwrite. Then, please mail a check to B’nai Israel (attn Chris Rocha) for the number of bags you are underwriting. Checks should be made out to the Federation for Jewish Philanthropy.
