Over the past two years, the Israeli government has cut 66% from their Passover aid budget. Families with limited financial needs are unable to access the proper food and supplies required to observe the strict guidelines associated with this significant Jewish holiday. Pitchon-Lev has organized over 13,000 holiday parcels to be delivered to families through distribution centers and volunteer efforts.
