NOLA Grannies: Recyclable Bag Production

In honor of Tu B'Shevat, the new year of the trees, we will spend the afternoon working on a recycling project for a wonderful cause. In their efforts to bring support and comfort to asylum seekers passing through New Orleans, the NOLA Grannies have come to realize one of the most needed resources for families are bags to carry their few posessions. Thanks to YouTube, there is an easy solution. Bring in your old t-shirts (solids and patterns are better than logos or pictures) to cut-up and turn into useful carrier bags. Bring your lunch. Desserts and coffee will be served. RSVP by Monday, January 14 to Rachel Ruth at 897-0143 x161 or

NOLA Grannies Project Visits the Uptown JCC

Grandmothers seem to have one thing in common: they refuse to tolerate anything or anybody messing with their loved ones. And that’s just what a group of ten grannies from New Orleans did when they heard about trouble at the border for families seeking asylum.


Creating Eight New Memories for Chanukah

This year let’s create eight nights of memories instead of eight days of gifts.
