Thanks to the hard work of hundreds of “Chasdei Naomi” volunteers during the Covid-19 restrictions, Rosh Hashanah operation of distributing food packages to the elderly, Holocaust survivors and needy families ended with great success in preparation for Rosh Hashana 2020.
Thanks to your generous donations, we were able to delight thousands of Holocaust survivors and elderly seniors throughout the country with a respectful and satisfying holiday meal in the “Happy New Year to Holocaust Survivors” campaign.
This year requests for food baskets have gone up by hundreds of percents due to the outbreak of Covid-19. To donate food baskets to the elderly and Holocaust survivors, click here
We are learning to adapt to the current situation, and to the challenges that the coronavirus brings with it… in addition to this year’s grocery basket – surgical masks were added. We also had to deal with an unfortunate shortage of volunteers, and limited capsules. That’s why we reached out to anyone who wanted to volunteer and ask them to come with close family and friends! We have the honor of meeting amazing groups of volunteers! Among them, Mali Levy, Shimon Gershon and their three children who turned the packaging into a family pastime, campers from the Bnei Akiva Bat Yam branch, who came in full force to pack hundreds of boxes, and several classes in schools in the area who came to help and came to give of themselves for Holocaust survivors and the elderly!
It’s amazing to see this much done! Feel free to watch too 😊
