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!
