Temple Emanuel upcoming events

There are several events coming up at Temple Emanuel, 7 Haggetts Pond Road in Andover.

People are invited to a Passover cooking demonstration today, Thursday, March 7 from noon to 2 p.m. Learn new Ashkenazi and Sephardic recipes. A buffet lunch will be served. Hosted by the Sisterhood of Temple Emmanuel.

There is also a Hawaiian Bingo Night planned for this Sunday, March 10 from 5 to 6:30 p.m., hosted by the Sisterhood of Temple Emanuel. The cost is $5 for Sisterhood members, $6 for nonmembers.

A diaper drive and bone-marrow registry will be held in conjunction with bingo night. The Sisterhood Social Action Committee is collecting diapers (opened boxes accepted) or money to purchase these items. Sizes 2 and 5 are especially needed. Donations will go to “The Giving Tree,” which will distribute to those in need.

Testing for the bone marrow registry is easy and at no charge. If you are between the ages of 18 and 55, and in good health, you can get swabbed. Donations are welcome to offset the testing cost.

You do not have to attend bingo to participate in either drive.

For more information on any event above, visit templeemanuel.net or call 978-470-1356.

Make your own doll at UU Congregation

From wisdom dolls and healing dolls, Kachinas, fertility dolls and voodoo dolls, spirit dolls have been around since prehistoric times, says Thea Shapiro, director of Religious Education at the Unitarian Universalist Congregation.

At this event, people will create their own dolls — using fabrics, sewing, wire and other media provided. Those interested are asked to bring beads, photographs, charms or other personal objects they might want to add to their doll. This workshop is limited to 10 adults. People are asked to reserve a spot soon. A $15 cost covers materials and refreshments.
