Congregation Or Chadash Sisterhood and Temple Emanu-El Women of Reform Judaism will hold their first major collaboration, a fashion show high tea, on Sunday, Sept. 15, from 2-4 p.m. The event will be catered by L’Chaim Catering and fashions provided by Clique and LuLaRoe will be modeled by members from both synagogues. Local artist Lynn Rae Lowe will emcee the event, which will be held at Temple Emanu-El. The cost is $25, with all proceeds benefitting WRJ’s YES (Youth, Education, and Special Projects) Fund. RSVP and payment by check or credit card can be mailed to Temple Emanu-El WRJ, 225 N. Country Club, Tucson, AZ 85716, attention Norma Cohen.

Over the past century, the YES Fund has supported such projects as building the dormitory at Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion in Cincinnati and the Union of Reform Judaism headquarters in New York; establishing the Jewish Braille Institute; founding NFTY, the North American Federation of Temple Youth; and helping to create the first of a network of URJ camps.
