Volunteer this Passover

San Francisco, San Rafael, San Mateo, Palo Alto, Santa Rosa

April 2, 2017 to April 9, 2017


The Kaufman family picks up Passover foods to deliver to community members.

Join JFCS Staff and community volunteers in a time-honored tradition of assembling and delivering Passover foods to low-income families and seniors. Make it your Passover mitzvah to help those who are vulnerable and isolated feel included during the holiday.

For only $18 you can fill a Seder Sack with traditional Passover Foods. You can make your gift for one family or offer a Chai Five: $90 fills five Seder Sacks!

Send a Seder Sack to People in Need >
