At first, we were only told not to gather together, and we continued working as usual. But a few days later, all of the schools were closed. We originally hired babysitters But after a few days, we stopped working…My husband and I both work in tourism Then, out of the blue, everything simply stopped entirely My husband was put on unpaid leave, and hopefully will get something from the unemployment office But I was simply sent home..We didn’t know what to do. Our economic situation was already not simple, but now… And Pesach was in just two weeks!! Save us!!!!!Then the angels of Colel Chabad Tzfat arrived, Rav Yoram, may Hashem bless him. It’s impossible to describe how moving and heartwarming it is to receive their assistance, not just the physical products, the gift cards…The fact that there is someone who is thinking of us, who cares about us Someone for whom Ahavat Yisrael isn’t just a slogan, it’s a way of life. They arrived at our house before Shabbat with groceries so we could get through Shabbat, and now we’re waiting for the Pesach assistance. This year, we truly understand the meaning of Kimcha D’Pischa. So now we’re home, on the fourth floor, with five little children and we can’t go outside… Our only chance to get through Pesach is if Colel Chabad helps us. We’re not the only ones; there are hundreds of families like us in the community in Tzfat who suddenly became needy families.Many of them will be celebrating Pesach at home for the first time (with all of the expenses that come with it…) Please help Colel Chabad Tzfat help us You are our only chance at making the Seder and celebrating on Pesach
The L. family
Aside from the assistance that we provide to families before the holiday, we also launched new initiatives:
Each family celebrating Pesach at home for the first time will receive a special grant! 2. We are currently distributing a large basket of fruits and vegetables to families in the community.
