(Philadelphia, April 7, 2022)–The Liberty Region B’nai B’rith Project H.O.P.E. (Help Our People Everywhere), which collects and distributes food to Jewish seniors and Jews living in poverty in the Philadelphia area ahead of Passover, is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year.
“This year also marks a second milestone of delivering to over 10,000 families since 1997,” said Project H.O.P.E. Chair Samuel Domsky, who began the Liberty Region Project H.O.P.E.
Operating out of Domsky’s garage when it first began, the Liberty Region Project H.O.P.E. last year had more than 400 volunteers who served 700 families who otherwise wouldn’t have access to kosher-for-Passover food.
This year, on April 10, hundreds of volunteers will again meet at Temple Sinai in Dresher to package and deliver food to those in need.
Project H.O.P.E. has served vulnerable communities since the late 1960s, when it was created by B’nai B’rith Brooklyn leaders, and has expanded to encompass regions across the country and hundreds of volunteers. Year after year, Project H.O.P.E. fulfills the B’nai B’rith tenets of helping those in need and connecting them with the Jewish people.
B’nai B’rith International has advocated for global Jewry and championed the cause of human rights since 1843. B’nai B’rith is recognized as a vital voice in promoting Jewish unity and continuity, a staunch defender of the State of Israel, a tireless advocate on behalf of senior citizens and a leader in disaster relief. With a presence around the world, we are the Global Voice of the Jewish Community. Visit bnaibrith.org.
