Today is always one of the busiest days of the year for our branches. This is especially true with the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. That said, we wanted to point out how amazing our branch managers and volunteers have been. They are giving their all to enable the needest in Israel to be able to celebrate the holiday.
This year will be a very difficult Pesach for many of us. Families and friends will not be together for the seder, leaving many senior citizens alone. This includes a significant amount of our Holocaust survivor clients. Everyone is worried about their health, especially those at high risk. All the while, uncertainty continues to mount in the world economy. Our centers, which usually have communal seders, are shut down. Many are unemployed or on furlough around the country, and they don’t know how they will make ends meet.
We have the honor of helping to bridge this gap for thousands of people, and while we can’t make people whole, we can at least take one worry off of their mind.
