In January 2021, Temple Israel established a person-to-person relationship with farmworkers and a partnership with the Farmworker Association of Florida/Homestead Location. We found a desire for sewing lessons -- especially among mothers who can no longer go into the fields to work without access to child care. Our congregation donated 14 sewing machines plus all of the necessary accessories & supplies. We nurtured on-site sewing classes and have been involved in other activities when called upon to help. A new round of classes has begun to take the sewing project to the next level, as we continue to support an important project empowering women. Stay tuned!
