Hey y'all, thought you might find it fun to see how 140 hats made their way from a wonderful group of knitters associated with Temple Beth Shalom in Needham, MA to... my house in Efrat, Israel to... Rafi Portal who spends several nights every week delivering hats, warm coffee and other treats to... soldiers on duty. Follow the photo trail below!
Some background: Every winter a group from TBS in Needham makes a trip to Israel, led by Rabbi Jay Perlman, and they bring along lots of hats for Israeli soldiers. Usually I meet up with them in a hotel in Jerusalem. This year, due to corona virus, the trip didn't happen and I'm so sorry I didn't get to thank them in person for their continued support...but this was great! Thank you all you fabulous and generous folks, and I hope to see you next year in Jerusalem!
