Passover Food Drive


Passover, a festival where freedom is celebrated, is fast approaching. While this is an opportunity for renewal and reflection, it is a challenge for those who are unable to afford Passover food items.

Help us to ensure that our children, families and Holocaust Survivors in Israel, can celebrate this holiday of freedom with plentiful food packages.

Together We Raised $34,000 to Feed 340 Families

Thank you! We surpassed our goal. Together we raised over $34,000 to feed 340 families!

We came together as a global community, took on this challenge and surpassed our goal. Thanks to our restaurants, home chefs, generous donors and a deep and broad community who joined hands to make this a reality. We are forever grateful

As we celebrate Rosh Hashanah, we think of our community in Israel who is able to join us in celebrating the new year.

Shana tovah u’metukah to all who celebrate.
