Once again, Temple Emanu-El will help more than 250 low-income New York City high school seniors to shine at their spring proms. In partnership with Park Avenue Synagogue, we will provide a “boutique” shopping experience, aimed at providing these young women with free prom ensembles. To make Project Prom a success again this year, we are seeking donations of NEW Handbags, NEW Shoes, and NEW sealed cosmetics.

There are three easy ways for you to participate:

  • We are in need of NEW evening shoes, evening bags and jewelry. Please drop off donations to Temple Emanu-El’s 65th Street lobby.
  • Help set up on Tuesday, April 26 from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM.
  • Assist girls with dress selections on Wednesday, April 27 and Thursday, April 28 from 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM.

Temple members interested in volunteering should contact the Tikkun Olam Committee at . Please provide your contact information, phone number and email address, as well as the days and times you are available to help.
