MITZVAH CLOSET:

DONATE. DONATE. DONATE.

 

There are a lot of different ways you can help support your local community! Start by exploring the opportunities available in our Mitzvah Closet. A simple donation from you could bring cheer to the homeless, the elderly, and the local refugees.

See below for more details.

 

Don't let families go hungry this Passover! With your support, boxes of food will be delivered to hungry families and those confined to nursing homes and assisted living facilities.

Sign up here to drop off your donation of matzah, matzah ball soup mix, gefilte fish, horseradish, and macaroons to the Mitzvah Closet by Friday, April 7. If you would rather give a financial donation, please send your donation, payable to Jewish Family Service, 75 East James Street, Lancaster, PA 17602.

The Passover Project is a community project supported by Jewish Family Service of Lancaster, Congregation Shaarai Shomayim, Degel Israel, and Temple Beth El. For additional questions, contact Alyssa Gottlieb at 717-951-1372 / usy@tbelancaster.org.
