Once again, Temple Emanu-El will help more than 200 young ladies in the
New York City area to shine at their spring proms. In partnership with Park Avenue Synagogue, we will provide a “boutique” shopping experience aimed at outfitting more than 250 low-income high school girls.

The girls who attend Project Prom are recommended by their guidance counselors or parent coordinators and come from public schools around the city as well as several other community organizations that Temple Emanu-El works with regularly. Last year, we hosted girls from Liberty High School, Manhattan Bridges High School, Hunter’s College Now program, Foster Pride, High School for Fashion Industries, among many others. One of the most important goals of this event is to enable the girls to shop, along with volunteer “personal shoppers,” so that they may experience the excitement of getting ready for the prom and celebrate their achievements. To make Project Prom a success again this year, we are seeking donations of special-occasion dresses, shoes, accessories and cosmetics.
