Jewish Family Service of MetroWest NJ’s Volunteer Services delivered Passover packages to homebound older adults and Holocaust survivors in Essex and Morris counties. Working with a team of 17 volunteers, the 141 packages were delivered last week in time for the holiday.
They were donated by Jewish Federation of Greater MetroWest and filled with non-perishables including grape juice, macaroons, matzoh ball soup mix, and tuna fish. JFS MetroWest also included matzah, masks, and hand sanitizer.
Social services for Jewish Holocaust victims are supported by a grant from the Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany. Holocaust services are supported by a grant from the JFNA Center on Aging and Trauma, a project of the Holocaust Survivor Initiative. Holocaust services are also made possible by other generous partners, including Jewish Federation of Greater MetroWest NJ, KAVOD SHEF in partnership with the Seed the Dream Foundation, the State of New Jersey, and the Wilf Family Foundation.
