Pesach Efforts

קמחא דפסחא​

Pesach is an extremely special time when families come together to celebrate our nation's freedom and redemption.
But there are many today "enslaved" by the burdens cast upon them - single mothers, orphans, and widows - people who barely have enough to get by day by day, let alone enough to celebrate this holiday.
This Pesach, let us Reach Redemption TOGETHER! This is not only a holiday for those who can afford it - it is for all Jews!
Please join me as I support the following causes to help make this vision a reality. Anything you can share will be highly appreciated!
Tizku l'mitvzos, and a happy and kosher Pesach!

Single Mothers in Israel

 - A personal initiative of a very good friend of mine based in Bet Shemesh
- Helps single mothers and children or other women suffering poverty without spousal input such as women and children in marriages who are dealing with emotionally handicapped or mentally ill men
- Currently targeting to help 50 women, but more requests come in daily
- Need a minimum of $30,000 for Pesach, of which only 10% (approx.) has already been raised
