Pesach 5780 Maos Chitim
My Dear Friends,
URGENT! CORONAVIRUS – COVID-19 IS EFFECTING MANY FAMILIES THIS PESACH AND YOUR HELP IS NEEDED MORE THAN EVER!
The COVID- 19 crisis is depriving many Crown Heights families of income and many are confronting wholly unanticipated, non-discretionary expenses; all the more devastating during these weeks leading to Pesach. Families who have never made Pesach before will be forced to do so this year. Young couples and elderly who usually rely on others for Pesach will need to stay home.
Families who budgeted for Pesach are being forced to use their savings on bare necessities. It is, therefore, incumbent on each of us to open our hearts and generously increase our annual maos chitim contributions for this year.
Our regular recipients of Crown Heights families are also worried. Very worried. They aren’t making a shopping list for Pesach because they can’t afford the basics: matzoh, grape juice, chicken, and other Yom Tov food. Little Mendel’s pants are too short, and Rochel’s shoes are too tight but their parents have no money for new clothing. Widows and orphans, struggling single mothers, people fighting life-threatening illnesses are all in trouble.
This year CSSY has been approached with more requests than ever before in our history. Our budget is much greater than what it was in the recent past.
CROWN HEIGHTS FAMILIES DESPERATELY NEED YOU!
Can you help sponsor a Seder at $360? or Yom Tov meal at $135? Whatever your ability is your donation of any amount will go a long way.
We must raise $350,000 (see budget below) to make sure every Crown Heights family in need of financial assistance can be taken care of.
In the merit of your kindness today, may G-d Almighty shower you with kindness, granting you and your loved ones blessing of health, happiness, and a Kosher un Freilichin Pesach.
