At seders, we traditionally recite the line, “let all who are hungry come and eat.” Please help our community effort in feeding the hungry by donating to the Needham Food Pantry through their Amazon Wish List, by donating to JF&CS Family Table program through their Amazon Wish List, or by bringing canned tuna and salmon to any of our in person Passover programs or services.

Thank you!
