JFS seeks Passover funds for needy

With people beginning to prepare for Passover, Jewish Family Service is asking the local community to do a mitzvah by contributing funds to help the needy. “Your kindness and generosity will enable 15 Jewish families who are struggling financially to purchase Passover foods required to celebrate a seder and to help them carry on the Jewish traditions that are so important to us all,” said Rose Shea, director of Jewish Family Service. “Please send a check made out to Jewish Family Service, 500 Clubhouse Rd., Vestal, NY 13850 and note on the memo line: JFS Passover donation.”

Donations can be accepted up to Wednesday, March 24, so that Jewish Family Service will have time to process and distribute the funds.

“In these difficult economic times, the community’s generosity will surely brighten the celebration of Passover for the recipients and remind those families that they are being remembered,” said Shea.
