Passover Packages for Jewish Service Members

Tax deductible
Imagine trying to observe Passover in a foreign land, at a base where you are the only Jew or where the closest kosher foods are a 4 hour drive away? That is the reality for many Jewish service members.

This year, you can support our brothers and sisters in the military by sponsoring the 13th Soldiers Passover Package Project.     

The Jewish Soldiers Project, which started with 10 small Passover packages back in 2008, has grown to serve thousands of Jewish soldiers across the globe year-round. Through our efforts, we have given support and a sense of community to many Jewish soldiers who would not otherwise be able to celebrate their faith. 

 In 2019, the JSP sent over 90 Passover care packages to service members serving in 20 nations including: Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Kuwait, Qatar, Korea, Japan, Germany, Italy, England, Poland, Niger and Djibouti (East Africa).  For those Jewish soldiers serving on the home front, we sponsored Seders at 2 dozen bases across the US and ships at sea. 

For 2020, we anticipate sending over 100 Passover packages serving the needs of hundreds of Jews in the military.  The packages include: matzos, grape juice, gefilte fish, horseradish, charoset,  jams , condiments, desserts  and whatever other items are requested.   

 In addition to care packages sent for Purim, Passover, Rosh Hashanah and Hanukkah, we send “Shabbot boxes” (challah, grape juice and babka) nearly every week throughout the year.

We are also looking for schools to make cards for Jews in the military.  For Hanukkah 2019, 3000 cards were made by students from over 50 schools in 20 states.
