Your Masks Will Create a Quilt of Healing

TSTI has engaged a fabric artist to make a unique display quilt using masks that have served their purpose and are ready for retirement. Of course, be sure to keep the masks you still need and wear, but if you have fabric masks that you no longer use, please wash them, bring them to TSTI, and leave them in the labeled bin in front of the Religious School Lobby doors.

These retired masks will have new life as they are used to create a one-of-a-kind work of art for the High Holy Days, a reminder of our difficult journey through the past year, and the beauty that we have been able to find even in moments of great hardship.

We will be happy to receive your donations  between June 14 and July 5. If you have any questions, please contact Cantor Moses at .
