The Fellowship has again committed to help tens of thousands of needy Jews in Israel and the former Soviet Union by providing them with food for the celebration of Passover, which begins at sundown on April 10 this year. We will distribute holiday food packages at food centers and soup kitchens as well as make special deliveries to homebound elderly.

These food boxes help needy Jewish families, children, and elderly celebrate the Passover holiday according to biblical tradition by giving them the special foods needed to partake of the Passover seder meal. It also gives these impoverished people a needed break from their daily struggle with hunger.

These food boxes help people like Ziporah, a widow living alone in Kiryat Malachi, Israel. Her husband passed away a couple years ago, and Ziporah, who suffers from many health issues, spends her days at home alone.

She receives a small government pension, but it is hardly enough to cover her food and medicine. That’s why she was so thankful when The Fellowship provided her with the gift of matzah for Passover in addition to her monthly food package. She was overjoyed that she will be able to celebrate the important holiday, all thanks to The Fellowship!

The Fellowship provides you the chance to build and donate your own Passover food box.
