Maot Chittim for Passover

Sponsor Needy Families in Israel for PESACH "Mao't Chitim"
As Passover is approaching, the economic situation in Israel is in an unfortunate state. This leaves the needy unable to feed themselves or their familes. 

Let's make sure these families are also able to celebrate Pesach this year! By sending in your "Ma'ot Chitim" donation today, YOU CAN remove the shackles of hunger that our brothers and sisters in the Holy Land experience on a daily basis, and allow them the FREEDOM to celebrate Pesach with dignity and joy. 

We are writing you today to solicit your support and participation in providing assistance for needy families, soldiers of the IDF, the police force, the border patrol, orphans, holocaust survivors etc.

We are aiming at sending an "Food Cards" at $80 per family for PESACH "Mao't Chitim"!

I wish to help my brethren in Israel with pre-paid Food Cards for the holiday of PESACH "Mao't Chitim" for: Victims of terror, Families of IDF soldiers, Orphans and needy families,

by clicking HERE and donating online.

Meet our volunteers and professionals making all of this happen in Israel!

Each and every month throughout the year, the Jewish Assistance & Relief provides close to 2,000 Food Cards for needy Israeli families with a minimum value of $80 to as much as $600, and for the Holidays, we supply an additional 3,000-5,000 families with assistance of at least $80 to help with the added Holiday expenses.
Highlights of the Food Card Program:

Recipients are chosen by local Ministry of Welfare offices based on specified criteria; many families work, but are struggling to make ends meet. Some lost their jobs, family sickness, economic hardships caused by the war on terror, death, etc.

Families receive pre-paid food debit cards accepted throughout Israel at any of the 400 Branches of Supersol, Blue Square National Supermarket, Machsanei HaShuk, Victory, and Yeinot Beitan chain stores, where they shop with dignity, and are able to buy foods of their choice.

Our Food Cards are pre programmed so that families can only purchase basic food and household products, and exclude any purchase of cigarettes, alcohol, clothing, cosmetics, electronics, or gourmet foods.

Food Cards are issued for six months and sometimes extended for another six months if there are extenuating circumstances, giving families time to adapt to their new economic situation and to learn how to live within their means.

Recipient families are overseen by their local welfare officers with additional oversight by the Jewish Assistance Fund, the Israeli arm of JAR.

Cards are issued throughout the year, including during war and holidays.

Recipients come from all walks of life and from all over Israel with absolutely no discrimination, and include: orphans, single parent families, holocaust survivors, the elderly, soldiers of the IDF, and special needs children, etc.

Food Cards are programmed with different amounts based on donor specifications and recipient needs.

Our administrative budget in Israel is covered by the rebates we receive from the national retailers so that 100% of your donation goes directly to feed needy families. There is NO warehouse and logistical fees spent to cover packaging and distribution costs as families receive their cards in the mail and then go shop like all other citizens.

In the merit of your generous donation, may you and your loved ones enjoy

A Happy and Kosher Passover!
