SDEROT NEEDS YOU NOW MORE THAN EVER!

 

Sunday April 14, 2019

It is with a broken heart that we inform you of the passing of Rabbi Moshe Pizam’s (Our leader in Sderot) father, Rabbi Yigal ben Shmuel Yehuda Pizam Z”L, of Haifa after after a long illness and tremendous suffering.  Rabbi Yigal Pizam Z’L worked and fought for the poor and needy of the Haifa region for 60 years and instilled in his children the important mission of caring for those who could not care for themselves.

Our leader, Rabbi Moshe Pizam will be sitting shiva the entire week before Passover, the most critical week in caring for those in need for the Holiday. Along with his son, we will forge through successfully and use all that he has taught us to make sure every Jew in need is cared for. May each of your donations be a merit to this special family.

 

Friday March 29,2019

As we enter Shabbat, we are preparing to spend Shabbat in Bomb Shelters. The situation is critical on the Gaza border and Hamas knows how disrupt our lives before every Holiday. Chabad Sderot spent the last week filling bomb shelters with food, water, medical supplies, oxygen tanks, and strategically preparing to help the elderly and sick into the shelters when the sirens begin wailing. This is aside from the tens of thousands of kilo of food and supplies that we are providing for Passover.

http://See Jerualem Post Friday March 29,2019

Hamas knows the Jewish calendar well and know exactly when do disrupt our lives before each holiday.

We plead for your assistance.

 

You have been a tremendous support to the people of Sderot in the past. Please continue to support them for Purim and Pesach this year. You are help is appreciated beyond words.

The cost of supplying 800 families for  Passover is staggering. Each family receives $800  in  food packages which includes: (through generous food suppliers we are able to receive 80% of the food donated)

Wine, Grape Juice, Matzoh, Oil, Butter, Milk, Eggs,  Fish, Chicken, Meat, Vegetables, Fruit, Cleaning supplies, diapers, seder plate and much more more.

In addition, each family receives a voucher for 1,000 shekel per child for a new outfit and shoes.

With Purim and Passover around the corner, Chabad Sderot is preparing on multiple fronts. The number of families they serve increases from more than 500 low income families to over 800. In years of conflict, it is even more difficult as many working families have lost part of their income and need supplemental assistance.

This past year has been a difficult one for the poor , elderly, and sick of Sderot. They have endured hundreds of attacks, hundreds of days in bomb shelters. People have lost their livelihood. When the attacks are not in the “news cycle”, the people of Sderot become forgotten.

We know from sad experience that Hamas knows the Jewish calendar all too well. They plan and coordinate to disrupt the lives of the Jews on the southern border during holiday seasons. If you are following the news, you will know that once again things are heating up. 

We are hoping for the best, and preparing for hard times. As always Chabad of Sderot is on the front lines preparing bomb shelters with food, water, medical supplies, clothing, and games for children.

Sderot, a low-income city just 1 kilometer from the Gaza border, acts as a buffer between Gaza and the rest of Israel. As the closest city to Gaza it is crucial to the security of Israel on its southern border. The people of Sderot are a constant target, living in fear of rockets and mortars, running to shelters every time the sirens sound, at all hours of the day and night. The IDF and Israeli government work hard to protect them, but they can only do so much. Many residents of Sderot (40% of them children!) already suffer from anxiety and PTSD from past conflicts. Many victims of this constant terror are unable to return to work, affecting their livelihoods and local businesses. Businesses are having to close. Children are once again living in fear and terror.

Chabad of Sderot has been on the front lines for 25 years. Our programs support IDF soldiers, the elderly, children, and the needy. We provide services and supplies to IDF soldiers, daily hot meals, weekly food packages, medication, after school children’s programs, summer camps and trips and much much more. Now, we are asking for your support to ensure the best holiday experience for the people of Sderot. Your support will contribute to this aid and so much more than words can ever describe!

A Breakdown of Chabad’s Passover Costs

The holiday packages that Chabad provides for Passover can feed a family of up to 10. The cost of these packages is higher than the food packages supplied throughout the rest of the year. Some items in the package include: grape juice, Challa, fish, Grape Juice, wine, cleaning supplies and diapers. The items have been purchased by Chabad or donated by generous donors. The total cost per person ends up being about $102. Right now, we have a total of 820 families and 1800 people signed up to receive these packages, making the total cost a staggering $625,000. Through generous food manufacturers and suppliers we were able to procure $541,000 in donated food leaving our cost at $83,600.

How You Will Help

These families would not have a chag sameach (happy holiday) without the help of Chabad Sderot. And Chabad cannot do it without YOU! We want the people of Sderot to be blessed with aPassover of health and happiness. To taste the sweetness of freedom and regain a sense of hope for the future. To reflect on their past and and be blessed with true freedom from constant fear of attack just because they are Jewish. To once and for all leave Mitzrayim!  With the rise of violence and the constant threat they endure, they have experienced a lot of trauma in the past year. The number of soldiers stationed on the southern border has also increased. Thus Chabad Sderot will host more than 500 chayalim during the Passover for the Seder and other Holiday meals.

Chayalim at Chabad Sderot

On top of the holiday packages and gatherings, we will be providing low income families with donated gift certificates in the amount of 1,000 shekels for new clothing. The total amount arranged is 50,000 shekel, approx $12,500.  We would like to provide this same thing for an additional 50 families.

Chabad-sukkot

So this year when you sit with your family at the Passover Seder table , we can think about this holiday for what it is, Zman Cheirutaynu, the time of our freedom. Because we can rest easy knowing that we have helped our brothers and sisters in Sderot do the same.

Campaign by
Chabad of Sderot
AL, USA

For 25 years, Chabad of Sderot has tirelessly supported the people of Sderot. Through times of crisis and conflict and in quiet times, Chabad of Sderot has been a crucial part of supporting the people of Sderot. They have been recognized by Mayors and Prime Ministers as a humanitarian organization. Chabad of Sderot cares for more than 300 low income families on a weekly basis. They provide food and essentials throughout the year, medical assistance, after school programs, trips and summer camp for children and teens, Bar and Bat Mizvot, weddings, and other family special occasions for those who cannot afford it.
