The Warbasse Jewish Heritage Congregation, located inside the hard-hit Warbasse housing complex, continues to bounce back from Superstorm Sandy – this time by helping their Jewish neighbors with free food for Passover this weekend.

The congregation escaped the worst of Sandy, only taking on a few inches of water, but was without power for months after the storm. Now they’ve received a large donation that will supply 500 people with food for the holiday.

Rabbi David Okunov and volunteers will be passing out free boxed food for Passover on Sunday at 11 a.m. It is a first-come, first-serve basis. The address is 2790 West 5th Street.

  1. Would be nice if the poor Jewish people, the ones who didn’t get all the benefits for free who don’t deserve them would get these Passover packages. But of course, the parasites will be in line hours early to make sure they get the freebies. Since they know all the tricks, they will have family members in line too, thus cheating others who really need it. SHAME ON THOSE PARASITES.

  2. The scandinavians think jews have a very strange face, especially the nose is very bad-looking, kind of scythe-like they say, . They call it ” Ful nasa”. the word “ful” is pronounced like the english word “fuel”. i kind of feel sorry for them, but maybe its the testosterone.. i´ve heard it increases the tissues inside the nose, especially bone mass..
