Auschwitz and the coronavirus: a single garment of destiny
|Rikmah Enoshit Achat (One Human Tissue)|
This request came in from TBE congregant Donna Wolff:Dear Rabbi Hammerman:I am enjoying all the zooming we are doing! Thank you for keeping us all engaged. It helps.For several weeks, my friend Ann and I organized a group of women at Infinity in Harbor Point to make face masks for front line hospital workers to protect their N95 masks at Stamford and Greenwich hospitals. We worked independently in our own apartments, respecting social distancing, each doing a different task until the final mask or shield was made. Now with face masks being mandated this monday by Governor Lamont, many websites (amazon, and others being out of stock), there was a call to action by Etsy.com sewing site for people to start making face masks. So we put together an online store on Etsy.com (Rubysewcute).Would it be possible for you to copy/paste this message below on your posts or suggest another way for me to get the word out. I would like to let TBE members know where they can get face masks.HERE ARE THE DETAILS - AND THANK YOU, DONNA!We wanted to let you know about our new Etsy store, RubySewCute, where we sell a variety of attractive cotton face masks. Our website is located at https://www.etsy.com/shop/rubysewcute or you can find us on Facebook.All masks meet CDC standards and are breathable, washable, and made with comfortable braided elastic that won't pinch.For a limited time, we will take $3 off the initial purchase by using the coupon found here: https://www.etsy.com/shop/RubySewCute?coupon=COVID.For every mask sold locally, we will donate 1 custom mask to Stamford Hospital.Together, let's work to Stop the Spread of Coronavirus!Sincerely,Donna Wolff
