The Jewish Women’s Institute, JWI, has launched a program called, JWI CARES in response to the Israel conflict. The new JWI CARES project was born out of a desire to show support for the IDF and our friends and family in ISRAEL during this unbearable time.
Please visit our FB page https://www.facebook.com/JWICARES to learn how we are launching a world-wide community handmade bracelet project to show ISRAEL and the IDF our support, as well as raise awareness and funds for “THANK ISRAELI SOLDIERS”.
Our ISRAEL bead bracelets are being made by our followers demonstrating support of Israel. When purchasing a bracelet, we send our JWI Dedication card alongside the bracelet in the IDF care packages that we distribute.
The first family JWI CARES event was on Wednesday, July 23 in West Hills. More than 46 people (some moms and teens as well as enthusastic fathers) presigned for the fun evening. We succeeded in making 800 bracelets which will be sent in our IDF CARE PACKAGES with our donation to “THANK ISRAELI SOLDIERS”. There will be two more events in the City for Aish and JWI families before we send all the care packages to Israel.
The new JWI CARES on Facebook (FB) features a pictorial detailing how to make the beads for community events and we will soon provide additional tools including YouTube tutorials so new supporters can encourage their communities to post pictures of specific local events.
The Jewish Women’s Renaissance Project jumped at our suggestion of the bead project taking place in their community within minutes of our post on the JWRP FB page. All of these women signed up to replicate the project with their groups. It goes to show you that mothers do not like standing by idling waiting.
May peace prevail and may Hashem keep Israel safe.
