Maot Chittim

  • Dear Friend,
    As Passover approaches, we are once again turning to our community for support during these challenging times.
    While the past year has presented its own set of obstacles, including the ongoing challenges in Israel, our commitment to aiding those in need remains resolute.

    Many families face financial strain and find it difficult to provide for themselves and their loved ones. At Chabad, we're dedicated to providing essential support. Our Bernard Pechter Kosher Food Pantry ensures access to kosher food items, while our partnership with Tomchei Shabbos delivers nutritious fresh food boxes to families and seniors weekly. Before each holiday, these boxes are filled with special treats, such as apples and honey for Rosh Hashana, latkes and chocolate gelt for Chanukah, hamentashen, fish, and meat for Purim, and generous gift cards to Kosher supermarkets for Passover so that all the family’s Passover food needs can be met.

    Please consider donating to our Passover fund. Every contribution, no matter the size, makes a significant difference.
    Thanks to the Roitman family's generosity, donations up to $5,000 will be matched, doubling your impact.

    A portion of the proceeds from our Passover fund will also support the needy in Israel. Your generosity will not only assist our local community but also provide vital aid overseas. Your support ensures dignity and joy for families in our community and beyond.

    As you gather with your loved ones for Passover, may you find comfort in knowing that your kindness is making a meaningful difference in the lives of others. Thank you for your continued generosity and support.

    Warm regards,
    Shimon Kramer
    Rabbi Shimon Kramer

    please encourage them to reach out to us.
