The Project Ezra Passover Funds and Sweets Drive is here! Make Passover 2023 a “Zissen Pesach,” a Sweet Passover, for the elders of Project Ezra.

WJC is collecting two different things for the often frail and needy elders of Project Ezra on the Lower East Side:

1. We are asking you to donate generously to Project Ezra. These funds will be distributed to the elders by checks which they use to purchase the Passover foods they need and want. Send your checks, made out only to “Project Ezra” and send to WJC- SOJAC. If you prefer, send your check directly to Project Ezra, 387 Grand Street- Ground Floor, NY, NY 10002; please note WJC in the memo. The drive starts now and ends on March 24th! In the past three years WJC has raised a generous amount, accounting for close to half of what is needed. (Other synagogues donate the rest.) Please, let’s do it again!

2. Now for the fun part! We want this Passover to be sweet for the elders, so we are collecting Cans of Kosher for Passover Macaroons and Dried Fruits or Nuts. We will collect only these items until March 19th at WJC. All items must be marked Kosher for Passover and dated 2023. We will have bins by the office and in the lobby. You can also shop online for these items on our Amazon Wish List.

Please participate in this Mitzvah to ensure that these older Jews are not forgotten, and can celebrate Passover with dignity and joy.
