Helping the community this Hanukkah

By Ellen Futterman, Editor

A portion of the proceeds from the sale of Diane Katzman’s jewelry on Dec. 5 will go to Jewish Federation of St. Louis. Katzman will hold her annual sample sale at her studio, 8505 Delmar Blvd. (next to Jilly’s cupcakes) from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Dec. 5-7. If you prefer to shop online, go to and use the code Hanukkah 19 for free shipping and Federation will benefit.

In addition, you can “pack a bag of love” to make Hanukkah a little brighter for community members who are homebound or living in care facilities. The Women’s Philanthropy crafts and packing event will take place at 6:30 p.m. Dec. 12 and 9:30 a.m. Dec. 13 at the Kaplan Feldman Complex, 12 Millstone Campus Drive. Families are welcome and dessert and snacks will be provided.
