Many of these activities have been suspended due to COVID-19, but we hope they'll be back soon!

Below are just some of the activities that our congregants regularly enjoy at AJ. All of those marked with an asterisk (*) are sponsored by AJWA Sisterhood.

If you are interested in learning about creating Judaic handcrafts, become be a part of “Stitchers.” They are primarily stitchers, practitioners of the needle arts. No special experience is necessary; new learners are always welcome. The Stitchers Club meets in the AJ lobby once a month on Wednesdays from 10:00 AM to noon. Need more information?

COLLEGE CONNECTIONS*
Connection to AJ doesn’t have to stop for our children when they move from high school to college! Our College Connection program provides a touch of home. Children (of members only) enrolled in the program receive the monthly AJ newsletter and holiday packages sent to their school. For more information, or to enroll your child, contact Karen Moses at karedlon@aol.com.

COOK FOR A FRIEND*
AJ has been participating in the Cook for a Friend program for over 30 years. Meals are cooked,  packaged and distributed from the JCC - Klein branch. Recipients of the meals are generally elderly people, living independently but needing assistance with shopping and meal preparation. AJ has three Cook for a Friend groups each month; two on Monday evenings, and one on Tuesday mornings. Helpful hands are always appreciated for a variety of tasks. No particular cooking skills required. Contact  Sue at 215.680.7112 or azuresue@aol.com for information about the group. 

HELEN FOX SEMI-ANNUAL CLOTHING DRIVE*
Twice a year, in fall and spring, AJ mounts a clothing drive to collect lightly used clothing, linens, and shoes for charity. Bring your unwanted items to AJ during the clothing drive week and they will be picked up by a philanthropic group. To find out when the next clothing drive is being held, call the synagogue at 215.635.6611.
