Friday: Passover Food Distribution Event

What makes this Passover different from all other Passovers?

Well, for one thing, we’re still in the throes of an economic downturn. That means, with money being tight as it is, it may be a bit more difficult this year for observant Jews to purchase the necessary items to make a proper Passover seder.

To that end, the not-for-profit Be Proud Foundation will hold a Passover food distribution event on Friday, April 15, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., in conjunction with The Russian Television Network of America, at Aqua Health Rehabilitation Center, 2753 Coney Island Avenue.

Co-sponsored by Aqua Health and Nevsky Yablokoff Memorial Chapels, the organization will distribute packages of kosher food, including matzah, to seniors and people in need for the second year in a row.

“Passover is the best time for us to show that we care about our neighbors. We are going to share our joy and happiness with those who count on us more than ever in this current economic climate,” said Raisa Chernina, president and founder of The Be Proud Foundation.
