Gifts to the Needy
“…whoever is hungry, let them come in and eat…” - The Passover Haggada
 

Dear Friend,

It is true that many are going through some very tough times. Nevertheless, it is necessarily at times like this that it behooves us to step out a bit from behind our own worries and troubles to help those facing far more difficult circumstances than our own.

In that vein, I am writing to inform you of an important program we have implemented in our communities during the weeks leading up to the Passover holiday. Through discreet channels, we have been made aware of people who are in such dire straits that they cannot obtain the most basic provisions for Passover. This includes large families, single-parent families, destitute individuals, immigrants and senior citizens. It may even include people living on your block, who – in spite of external appearances – will need a helping hand to bring the holiday spirit home. In response, we are disbursing special funds and delivering Passover Packages – with a complete assortment of foods and necessities.

We also are arranging placements for the Seder for those who have no place to go. As the Passover Haggada says, “Whoever is hungry, let them come in and eat”. Simply speaking, no Jew may be left behind on the Seder Night.

On a global scale, Chabad will be dispatching representatives to some of the most remote places on earth to organize and conduct the Seder. Israeli students backpacking in the Himalayas will be hosted by “Chabadniks” for the Passover holiday as will be locals and visitors in Africa, the South Pacific, Europe and the Americas. No place in the world is too far, no Jew too insignificant, for Chabad to go forth and bring them the love, warmth and joy of our heritage.

We hope you share in the nachas of these activities on the global scene as well as locally here in the Greater Phoenix Valley. At the same time, we urge and invite you to be a partner in our sacred undertaking by making a contribution today. We're counting on you… and so are many needy families!

It is axiomatic that showing kindness to others makes us worthy of kindness in our own lives. In merit of your generosity and compassion in bringing the joy of Passover to the less fortunate, may you and yours be blessed with a very healthy and joyous holiday!
