South Florida Jewish organizations are delivering Passover meals to families in need, Holocaust survivors and other homebound seniors throughout the next few weeks leading up to the holiday, which begins on the evening of April 15.
Ferd & Gladys Alpert Jewish Family Service in West Palm Beach is conducting two kinds of meal deliveries for the holiday. On April 6, the agency is delivering Passover baskets to 75 households that are filled with non-perishable Passover foods, like matzo, soup, canned vegetables, macaroons, kosher turkey or Publix gift card, and other holiday treats. The meals are meant to provide food for people who may have recently lost a job or need additional help making ends meet.
On April 14, Alpert JFS is partnering with the Kind Kitchen and the Jewish Federation of Palm Beach County to deliver meals to more than 100 Holocaust survivors. The meals will be filled with all the foods needed for the Seder.
Belinda Lasky, director of volunteer leadership for Alpert JFS, said, “Alpert JFS is grateful to all of the volunteers who help prepare the holiday baskets, as well as deliver the meals to families so they can celebrate the holiday.”
“It is always meaningful when volunteers come together to help the community, especially during a poignant holiday like Passover,” Lasky continued.
