Quickly, Passover will be here. Along with the necessary pre-cleaning for the holiday, most of the food for the entire holiday is purchased in advance.
Yet this is not the case for Israelis living in poverty.
Since it is forbidden to eat bread or leavened food at Pesach, matzot (unleavened bread) must be purchased in advance.
This is where Israel Relief Aid’s Passover food bags come to save the day. Like every year, in Bat Yam, just south of Tel Aviv, a distribution of bags/boxes of special Passover food will be made to those verified as living in poverty.
The special food needs to be purchased (in bulk at special warehouse prices). There is a team of volunteers who will make an assembly line to pack the packages.
With the Passover bags/boxes, a box of matzot will be included. Special distribution days will be made for these welfare-roll families to come and collect.
You are invited to join in to this Passover project for Israelis who cannot make ends meet. They will be blessing you! To take part, designate your gift for “Passover”.
