If circumstances were different, I would be with other volunteers at Temple Sinai today, packing and loading kosher for Passover food to deliver to over 750 of our most needy as part of B’nai B’rith’s longstanding Project H.O.P.E. community action program. Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 crisis, it was not to be.  However, thanks to our partnership with the Jewish Federation and the Mitzvah Food Bank, all the nonperishable kosher for Passover food was transported last week from George’s Market to a federation distribution center, then off to six food bank locations that serve our community. With the help of the Jewish Community Center and Jewish Family and Children’s Services, most of the recipients have been notified about where to receive their food, and measures are being taken to assist with safe pickups. I am grateful to the many people involved with B’nai B’rith who support Project H.O.P.E. through donations and, lately, emotional support. The money raised this year was enough to cover the food costs, and rest assured, the food will get to those in need. 
Special thanks to Brian Gralnick, director of social responsibility for the Jewish Federation, and Diedre Mulligan, mitzvah food program senior manager, for helping me coordinate the food transfer. Also, another special thank you to John Salanik, Kevin Carlin and George Endrigian of George’s Market. I could not ask for better partners every year and I am eternally grateful and full of love and respect.
We will be back stronger for the 24th Project H.O.P.E. on Sunday March 21, 2021. 

On behalf of the Domsky and Pilchik families, we wish you ” A Zissen Pesach!”
