Davidowitz Weaving Room

Are you interested in weaving at the JCC? Want a tallis? How about a new tallis bag? How about weaving matzah and afikomen bags for Passover? You can also weave a beautiful scarf or table cloth.

The JCC of Wyoming Valley is the only Center in the US that (we know of) to have a weaving program. Created in 1966, the program provides members at a discount, and non-members with the opportunity to weave heirloom garments for their family and friends – or even for themselves. You do not have to know how to weave or even be someone who has done creative handiwork in the past. The Loom Room staff will guide you through the process. With our help, you can weave.

Don’t miss your chance to participate in the ancient art of Tallis weaving.

Questions or want to sign up? Call the JCC 570-824-4646 and ask for Barbara, if she is not there please leave a message and she will get back to you with answers.
