Fighting Hunger during Passover and all year round...

When 400 Seder meals are needed,

Jewish Family Service is there.


And we can’t do it without you.


Relax. We’re not asking you to cook.


But you can make sure 400 Seder meals will be in the homes of Cincinnati vulnerable families - many of them older adults - who can’t otherwise afford Passover food.


On Sunday, April 2nd, volunteers with the 19th Annual Dr. Samuel S. Rockwern Passover Delivery of Jewish Family Service project will personally deliver boxes filled with the traditional food necessary to observe Passover. We need to raise $15,000 by March 24th, 2017.


Please help us reach our goal. Every $36 donation funds one box filled with:

Matzoh - Matzoh Ball Soup Mix - Frozen Prepared Chicken Dinner - Matzoh Meal - Grape Juice Gefilte Fish - Horseradish - Apples - Chopped Nuts - Macaroons - Passover Candy

And a Happy Passover message


You and your family can also help by volunteering to deliver a box or two…along with your smile.

To volunteer, call Sandee Golden at 513-766-3352 or sign up online at


Your compassion is the flavor that makes each Seder meal complete.


Thank you,


Beth Schwartz, CEO


P. S. What if we get more donations than we need? Nothing is ever wasted. Extra food and money will go to support Jewish Family Service Heldman Family Food Pantry. More than 120 households rely upon our pantry to stop hunger throughout the year.


Dr. Samuel S. Rockwern Passover Delivery of Jewish Family Service is a special project bringing together monetary contributions and volunteer energy to brighten the holiday for individuals and families experiencing financial difficulties.


Won’t you help us deliver Passover meals to families in need?

How can you help?

You can donate food, money and/or time.


1. Collect and donate Passover food. Barrels for Passover food collections have been placed at most congregations and at the Mayerson JCC. Please drop off boxes of Matzah, Macaroons or Matzah Ball Soup Mix to be included in the Passover deliveries to famiilies in need.


2. Help by donating the money needed to purchase fresh food items that cannot be donated. We are off to a great start with a very generous contribution from The Rockwern Charitable Foundation. Your tax-deductible donation will help us reach the $60,000 we need to stop hunger in our community year-round. We need to raise $15,000 by March 24, 2017. Donate online now.


3. Donate your time.

     Join us as a volunteer by assembling the Seder boxes 11 am - 2 pm on Monday, March 27, 2017 or Tuesday, March 28, 2017. 

     You can also help deliver the boxes to the individuals and families on Sunday, April 2, 2017.


     The preparation and delivery site will be at Jewish Family Service Barbash Family Vital Support Center, 3113 Clifton Avenue, Clifton, OH 45220 on the campus of Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion. Sign up to volunteer now.
