It also takes away dignity, destroys any sense of normalcy, and fills homes with blame, frustration, and despair. High costs of food and living expenses plus other economic challenges make these days leading up to Pesach incredibly difficult for needy Israeli families.
For so many struggling households such as those battling unemployment, others trying to climb out of debt, families battling illness, single mothers who’ve already been struggling to cover their basic needs throughout the year, families who were once considered "average" but now can't make ends meet plus countless others, trying to shop for holiday necessities is an impossible task.
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 families in need with store credit for use at leading supermarket chains, helping them purchase their holiday necessities such as wine, matza, chicken, produce and other essentials. Families in extreme poverty also receive supplemental financial aid.
Last year, we distributed over $2,000,000 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 celebrate Pesach with the foods they need
Help a bar mitzvah boy from a needy family celebrate his special milestone, with sponsorship of tefillin or a bar mitzvah package. Twinning with your loved one's bar mitzvah is a beautiful and meaningful way to commemorate your simcha.
