The Knitzvah Group
The Knitzvah Group is a subgroup of the Hesed Committee at TBZ. Our mission is to contribute to the senses of warmth, being cared about, and known within the Community—that is—knitting TBZ together! We meet about once a month, from late Fall through spring, at members’ homes- usually in front of a bright blazing fireplace. We spend the evening knitting and crocheting (we teach/support from beginners to advanced) or doing any handiwork people choose to bring along with them. We make baby hats when there’s a new baby in a member’s family, and we make Caring Wraps (lap blankets and shawls) to bring to members who are ill or going through particularly challenging times. At meetings, we enjoy catching up with each other, as well as letting the group know of Community news and who might need something from us, the Hesed Committee, or the Rabbis. We’re a drop-in group – you can come once or as often as you’d like. Look for an announcement of the first meeting of the year in Happenings in late November/early December.
