Soldier’s Passover Project 2012

TO DONATE using the Passover Project Flyer, CLICK HERE This Passover season, the Temple Beth David community has the opportunity once again to help our brothers and sisters serving the nation in Afghanistan and around the world celebrate Pesach by sending care packages of kosher for Passover food. For the fifth year, the members of Rochester Jewish Community will be sending Passover Care Packages to Jewish service members. Last year, 50 packages were sent  to soldiers/sailors serving in Afghanistan, Iraq, Kuwait, Korea and bases in the U.S. and this year we hope to serve even more. Most of the packages are sent to Chaplain/Rabbis to serve large communities of Jewish soldiers. The Passover packages contain: a Haggadah, matzos, grape juice, gefelte fish, macaroons, chicken soup and other items. This year we are looking for volunteers to solicit donations from local businesses to cover the cost of the Pesach foods (such as gift cards to Wegmans or Tops) and shipping the packages to Army/Navy bases on the coasts from which the Army flies them to the soldiers.   If you wish to donate to this worthy project please send a check made payable to the “Temple Beth David” and place “Soldier’s Passover Package Project” on the memo line. Donations can be sent to: Temple Beth David, 3200 St. Paul Blvd, Rochester, and N.Y 14617 or dropped off at the Temple Office. Donations should be sent by Monday 3/26/2012. If you have any questions or would like to help with the project, please contact Keith Freedman at kdfreedy@aol.com.
