Project Spotlight: Yad B'Yad Food Box Distribution

In preparation for Passover, which begins later this month, Rabbi Yechiel Eckstein handed out Fellowship food boxes to impoverished Israelis through the Fellowship-supported Yad B’Yad organization. Many Jews wish to celebrate this holiday by preparing the special Passover meal, called seder, but so many cannot afford even the basic necessities, let alone special holiday foods.

Thankfully, Yad B’Yad brings food boxes to so many impoverished Jews in the city of Lod, Israel, bringing hope and comfort, especially during the holiday season. Yad B’Yad, which means “hand in hand,” helps the most desperate citizens of Israel – Holocaust survivors, single parents, handicapped veterans, lonely elderly, and new immigrants. Without Yad B’Yad, supported by funds from The Fellowship, so many would go hungry. While Yad B’Yad distributes meals all year round, a special food box for Passover means so much to all those who want to celebrate the holiday with dignity.

Thanks to our wonderful donors, The Fellowship will distribute hundreds of holiday food boxes to those who need it the most. Thank you for your continued support!
