Government programs like SNAP (food stamps) do not include assistance for feminine hygiene menstrual health products.  Many underserved women and girls regularly miss work and school during their regular menstrual cycle.  They cannot afford pads or tampons.


In response to this need, the local chapter of the National Council of Jewish Women developed the P.A.D. Project.  The P.A.D. Project provides feminine hygiene products to women and girls during their monthly cycle.  NCJW works with local homeless shelters, churches, and similar organizations, to distribute packets of pads, tampons and pantiliners to their clients.


Our Sisterhood, along with others in the Rochester community, has agreed to provide and package these products.  On Sunday, February 19, 2023 at 10 a.m. we will assemble personal hygiene kits for women and girls in our community.


What’s Needed:  Generous donations of packages of individually wrapped pads, tampons and pantiliners.   No bladder control products.  Use those newspaper coupons or buy at BJ’s or Costco.  Bring your donation to Temple, and place it in the collection box next to the Chapel.


Contributions are also welcome … we will buy the products for you.  Mail your check to

TBE Sisterhood, at Temple Beth El Sisterhood, 139 Winton Road S, Rochester, NY 14610.

We look forward to Sisterhood members and friends coming out to help with the project on February 19th.


Let’s show our big hearts!  What a wonderful, practical and caring way to help women in our community.  Questions?  Contact Amy Wasserman, chair, (585) 261-6037,  wasscleans@aol.com, or Gail Finkelstein, (585) 755-8790, gailfink49@gmail.com.
