If you live on a low-income, access to holiday services and food can be expensive and overwhelming. This is why our Jewish Holiday Assistance program is a highlight for so many families. With your help, we provide extra assistance to support people in carrying on Jewish tradition, including Rosh Hashanah, Hanukkah and Passover.

Every year, you help us provide holiday gifts to local families through our Hanukkah Helpers program. We’re grateful to this year’s organizer, Judy Weinstein, and all those who donated and put these packages together. They bring light and laughter into many homes.

One parent says, “As a single mother of 3, the Chanukah hamper is such a treat and relieves some of the pressure off of me. My kids and I are so grateful for this program! And thankful to the generous donors.”

Thank you for spreading light this holiday season!
