Passover Food Secured for Needy Israelis

Jewish people around the world will begin to observe Passover at sundown this Friday. Yet so many poor families and elderly Jews in Israel (and elsewhere) cannot afford the foods needed to celebrate this important holiday. The Jewish Press reports on The Fellowship’s efforts to help provide these neediest of Israelis with food this Passover:

Children in tens of thousands of Israeli families will not have to ask the question “Why is our seder table different from that at my friend’s house?” because of a mammoth Jewish group that ensures it doesn’t happen.

Intricate linkages with the Israeli government and other groups, including an especially positive bond with the International Fellowship of Christians and Jews (IFJC) run by Rabbi Yechiel Eckstein, have provided the essential funding needed to make sure the food is available.

This year the organization was charged by the Israeli government to implement the Food Security Project, making sure that Israelis struggling with poverty will have what they need to eat and feed their families for Passover.
