The expectant and new mothers participating in the Womb to 5 program will soon be receiving kitchen supplies and hand-made children’s hats thanks to teens from Temple Beth Torah in Holliston and the Metrowest Chapter of Hadassah Sisters!

The teens from Temple Beth Torah participated in a service project where they reached out to their families and friends and collected oven mitts, measuring cups, digital thermometers, spatulas, and large water bottles. Thank you to Kayla Freedman, Leah Lieberman, Joshua Miller, and Ella Talmanson for their efforts in collecting a carload of these supplies! Thanks also to Rabbi Mimi Micner for her support in coordinating the teen project.

The beautiful hats, in preemie and large sizes, were handmade with love over the past year by the Metrowest Chapter of Hadassah sisters. Colorful and soft, the hats will keep the babies in the program warm during these cold winter months.

Womb to 5 is a long term initiative that will combine nutrition and social service interventions to ensure proper nutrition will be available to expectant and new mothers, newborns and their growing families. JFS and partner, Daniel’s Table, strongly believe this innovative approach will help our community’s most vulnerable expectant mothers thrive and their children, when entering kindergarten, will be healthy and ready to learn.
