Where: Temple Isaiah Volmer Deck

Do you have a treasured piece of jewelry that tells a wonderful story? Have you shared this story with your children, grandchildren, or friends? Here's an opportunity to connect with other members of Isaiah Women through our jewelry. Jewelry is so much more than ornamental. It can hold a special memory of a person or place or pay homage to a moment in time and history. We invite you to bring a piece of jewelry - ring, necklace, pin, bracelet, pair of earrings - for an intimate evening of story sharing. After everyone has shared, you will compose your story on lovely stationery. This will ensure your memories will be passed along for future generations to read. Masks and vaccination required
