FOOD FOR PASSOVER - FROM THE RIVERDALE JEWISH COMMUNITY PROJECT

We recognize that each household is being affected differently by the current crisis. Some of us remain financially secure, but need help with the logistics of holiday preparation and meals, while some of us are struggling to meet our day to day financial obligations and cannot afford the cost of holiday meals. Each meal costs us about $23 per person, per meal to purchase. We ask that each person make a donation in whatever amount they are able so we can offer this service to as many people as possible. How much each person pays will be kept strictly confidential. Click on this link if you would like to place an order for meals.  If you need don't this service, but want to help others through the RJC Mao't Chittim fund please donate by clicking here. All funds will be used for subsidized food. Any surplus will be used to continue to supply food to those in need after Passover. If you have any questions please call Oren Hiller, RJC Executive Director,  at 718 548 1855.

MA'OT CHITTIM - REMEMBERING THE POOR

The RJC Chesed Fund and Fund For The Needy will once again serve as the instrument through which we reach out to poor Jews during this season. Economic factors have swelled the numbers of the needy both locally and in Israel. As we sit down to the Seder with our families and dear ones, Jews throughout the metropolitan area and in Israel will be our “guests” if you generously answer this call for help. Donations can be made online here or by making a check payable to the “RJC Chesed Fund” or the "Fund for the Needy" and include in the memo area “Passover.”
