It also takes away dignity, destroys any sense of normalcy, and fills homes with blame, frustration, and despair. The health crisis is making these days leading up to Pesach more difficult than ever. For Israeli families including unemployed parents and single mothers who’ve already been struggling to cover their most minimal daily needs like food, clothing and utilities throughout the year, trying to shop for holiday necessities is an impossible task. Widespread job loss has produced thousands more families who used to be able to stay afloat, but now can’t pay bills or buy groceries. So Pesach, the holiday of freedom, becomes an extended time of stress and despair.
Together, we can change that. Your donation to our Pesach campaign will provide supermarket gift cards to thousands of people in Israel, helping them purchase their holiday basics such as matza, wine, chicken, and other essentials. Families in extreme poverty also receive supplemental financial aid.
Last year, we distributed over $1,000,000 worth of assistance, enabling thousands of needy families, more than 1,000 agunot and grushot, plus many other desperately poor people to get what they needed to make their holidays joyous. This Pesach, with your critical help, we hope to distribute even more.
Double your celebration this year by helping a hungry family sit down to a full table
