To help fund the redesign of its website, Lilith threw the non-profit organization’s first-ever silent auction. The event, March 26 at Drisha in Manhattan, was a huge success, thanks to the generosity of donors far and wide. Many Lilith supporters not only attended the event, but — from across the country and the globe — provided an eclectic and truly Lilith-like selection of items, from sex toys to a Talmud class. (In covering the event, the bloggers at Young Manhattanite listed a few of the items — from a matrushka doll of Russian dictators to Hazon cyclist gear to a women-at-study tambourine — and commented that “when they say, ‘You’d never find a grouping of these items anyplace else’, they mean it.”)
