Interested in Needlework?
The Kesher chapter of the Pomegranate Guild of Judaic Needlework now meets at the JCC! When members of the Pomegranate Guild sit down to stitch, they are reviving Jewish traditions through their work with textiles. Meetings are a rich blend of needlework, culture, tradition and religious practices as they relate to Judaic textiles. In the Jewish tradition, an item created by an unrecognized stitcher is as esteemed as one created by a master artisan. The Guild recognizes this tradition and encourages membership, beginner and professional, women and men alike. For more information, please email kesherpg@gmail.com or visit pomegranateguild.org.
