Vancouver City Happenings

Project Headband from Na'amat Galim Vancouver 

Vanc Project Headband IMG_0740Last January 2018, Ruth and her friend Marion (86) spearheaded Project Headband.

The goal was to crochet or knit warm headbands for those less fortunate.  Our Na’amatniks were invited to a session to learn how to crochet with Marion and Ruth.

Over 150 headbands were made, some by our members and others were made by family members and friends.   Amazingly, Marion made over 80 headbands.

This past January 2019, the headbands were given to clients at the Jewish Food Bank. The colourful headbands were well received and the clients were very thankful.

The rest of the headbands were distributed to the women of the Vancouver Downtown Eastside.

The 2nd Annual Soup Making!  

We gathered in a member’s kitchen. In true Jewish Mother and Bubbe style, we cooked together. We divided into 3 groups and each group created a sumptuous soup following a previously chosen recipe. From the finished product, 2 of the soups were divided up and we each took home samples. The third batch was frozen and later devoured at our annual retreat.
