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!
