Bruce Levy Memorial 2019 JFS Passover Food Baskets Program

 Click here to make a donation!

Each year, JFS strives to make Passover meaningful by reaching as many individuals and families as possible through this year’s Bruce Levy Memorial Passover Food Basket Program. This year, the event will take place on Sunday, April 14th. Event co-chairs Rochelle Adler Effron and Paula Picker, will join volunteers, donors, staff, board members, synagogues, and other New Orleans-area Jewish agencies to prepare and deliver Passover food and ritual objects to hundreds of members of the local Jewish community.  Many of the recipients are elderly or people with disabilities.  This is the only contact some have with other members of the Jewish community all year long.


We are accepting contributions! This project is entirely funded by donations from generous people like you.  It costs $100 to fill a Passover basket for two people. Contributions of any amount are welcomed. Click here to make a donation.
