Celebrating Passover is a beautiful tradition that requires special food to properly observe the holiday. However, it can be difficult for families living on a
limited budget to afford the high cost of Passover food.
Every year, Jewish Family Service asks community members like you to donate money or volunteer time to our annual Dr. Samuel S. Rockwern Passover Delivery
Project of Jewish Family Service. With the proceeds from the donations, our dedicated volunteers source and purchase fresh produce, frozen kosher Passover meals, and additional
kosher-for-Passover packaged items to make the traditional Passover meal complete.
When all food items have been collected (from gefilte fish and chicken to apples and macaroons), they are sorted, assembled, and carefully packaged for
delivery. These bags are then delivered by volunteers in plenty of time for Passover. In this small but meaningful way, we believe we are bringing the holiday of Passover into the homes of
vulnerable families and older adults throughout the Cincinnati region.
Our Passover Delivery Project is organized through our Heldman Family Food Pantry, located on the campus of Hebrew Union College–Jewish Institute of Religion. The food pantry is operated out of our Clifton location, in our Barbash Family Vital Support Center. If you're in need of our services, please call us at 513-766-3370.
Dr. Samuel S. Rockwern Passover Delivery of Jewish Family Service was founded as Cincinnati Pesach Delivery Project in 1998 by a group of dedicated volunteers
from Northern Hills Synagogue and Yavneh Day School.
You can help feed struggling families and individuals throughout the year. The hard truth is that many of those who need assistance at Passover also struggle with
food insecurity at other times of the year. Jewish Family Service Heldman Family Food Pantry provides an emergency supply of food and personal care items to families and individuals in need.
Won’t you please consider making a donation to the food pantry to help at Passover time and throughout the entire year?
