Warm winter clothing, books, arts and crafts, toys and other items are being collected so needy Jewish children in Louisville can have a happy Chanukah.
Community members are asked to participate in the annual Hanukkah Helpers program by shopping for new items for the children that their parents have requested. After September 27, paper dreidels listing the requested items will be available at Adath Jeshurun, Keneseth Israel, Temple Shalom and The Temple.
Gifts should be returned to the offices of these synagogues by November 11, so they may be distributed in a timely fashion. Tax deductible cash donations also are being collected and should be made payable to Jewish Family & Career Services.
Hanukkah Helpers is co-sponsored by JFCS and Temple Shalom.
Questions? Contact the Temple Shalom office at 458-4739 and ask to be contacted by Sheilah Abramson-Miles.
