On Sunday, Dec. 19, Bob and Evelyn Harris and their family, along with other members of the Young Israel of West Hartford, visited My Sister’s Place in Hartford’s north end to deliver a cache of much needed items for the shelter’s residents.  Since 1982, My Sister’s Place has been a safe haven for women and their children who are suddenly forced into the streets due to domestic violence, eviction, unemployment or mental illness. The Young Israel group collected the items over the last month as part of a project dedicated to the memory of the Harris’ daughter, Judith Harris Sinai z”l . The project was coordinated by two Young Israel  teens — Tova Goldfischer and Josh Glahn.
