"Let all who are hungry, enter and eat." (Hagadah)
Seder night is a time traditionally steeped in much symbolism.
For centuries, Jews the world over, have tried to reenact
and revive that heady sensation of freedom and closeness to
Hashem that we experienced on that first Pesach night. We
have always endeavored to make this holiday an occasion in
which to foster our feelings that we are children of royalty.
For our little ones it may be the time to replace their winter-worn
shoes. For our older children, that feeling of being special
can come in the form of a new dress or suit. The Jewish woman
revels in an amply-stocked larder with which to prepare a
feast fit for nobility, while the father of the household
offers grateful thanks to Hashem for having been able to provide
so well for the holiday.
But, alas, for so many families, this scenario is but a wishful
dream. Countless Jewish homes, find poverty a steady [albeit
unwelcome] guest usually accompanied and exacerbated by other
tragic difficulties. Illness, death r"l, and financial
ruin have bent our brethren's back and make them feel shackled
to a painful existence, with no sign of liberty in sight!
This is where the volunteers of EZRAS YISROEL step in. their
determined goal is to make every Jewish man, woman and child
taste freedom on Pesach. Supported by people like you and
supervised by rabbinic leaders. EZRAS YISROEL channels its
resources towards providing food and clothing to those who
truly cannot afford it.
By continuing to assist them in this vital work, you can
have satisfaction of knowing that through you, another Jewish
family will be bestowed a sense of deliverance this auspices
In the merit of benevolence, may all of us be granted our
fervent wish of Lshana Haba B'Yerushlaim - next year in Jerusalem.
