Over 450 parcels of Pesach essentials will be distributed to elderly and isolated members of the community through a joint initiative between the United Synagogue and the London School of Jewish Studies.
Project Chesed parcels include matzah, wine, tea, coffee, cheese and cold meats. They will be dispatched across 24 US communities, with the greatest demand from Hackney and East London Synagogue.
Rakusen’s, Osem, Blooms and Snowcrest are among food firms supporting the venture, which has also received backing from the Benjamin Angel Foundation and a private donor.
