Our long-time member, Iris Lee Knell, is the founder of Chemocessories, a non-profit dedicated to helping cancer patients feel and look better during treatment. They create personalized sets of accessories, including jewelry, scarves and turbans, that are designed to lift spirits during a difficult time.
We will be assembling these sets at the synagogue and we welcome participation from all interested! Sign up for an hour-long shift (or a couple) here and participate in a great mitzvah for a great cause.
Volunteer dates are August 9 and August 10, starting at 10:00 AM and going all day.
Additionally, if you have any scarves you’d like to donate, please drop them in the collection at Patterson Cleaners in Manhattan Beach in advance of the event. Jewelry donations, alone with cleaned scarves are also welcome. These can be brought to the synagogue for immediate use.
Sign up here.
