An Arm of Hineini: The Temple Isaiah Caring Community

Knitzvah, a warm and welcoming charity knitting group, was started by Cantor Doob. UFO (UnFinished Objects), developed as a spinoff of Knitzvah. During the pandemic, the two groups merged and met twice a month on Zoom. We are now back inside meeting in the Temple. Knitzvah meets on the 2nd Monday of each month and UFO meets on the 4th Monday of each month. Meetings are from 10 am - 12 noon. Masks are required. 

Knitzvah’s mission was to make shawls and throws for Temple members going through medical issues. We became so prolific that we began knitting hats and scarves that we donate to local area agencies. In the winter of 2020-2021, we made over 300 donations of warm items. While we continue to provide shawls and throws to Temple members, we expanded our donations to include hats and scarfs to refugee organizations, homeless and domestic abuse shelters, Jewish Family and Children’s Service, and an annual “warming night” held to distribute warm clothing to those in need in the Greater Lawrence area.

Please join us for as much time as you are able - friendships and conversation are goals as well as donating items.  We look forward to welcoming you.
