US Chesed’s annual Pesach Parcel initiative helped over 600 families that struggle with the costs of Pesach have an enjoyable festival. The project, funded by US Chesed’s Pesach Appeal, ensures these families receive either vouchers or parcels with items such as matzah, cheese, jam, chocolate, cold meat, tea, coffee and grape juice.

This year for the first time, US Chesed was able to include communities outside of London, such as Birmingham Central Synagogue, which joined The US earlier in the year.

Speaking about the initiative, Michelle Minsky, Head of US Chesed, said: “We are delighted that once again the Chesed Appeal is able to assist over 600 US families over Pesach. US Chesed aims to provide sensitive and discreet help to those in our communities who are struggling financially, especially at this time, and it is thanks to our generous donors that we are able to do so. We therefore take this opportunity to thank everyone who has supported this project, both financially and by volunteering their time”.
