Dozens of families across Israel will be hosting Holocaust survivors for Passover Seder this year as part of a national project organized by the NGO “Shorashim Shel Netina”, dedicated to helping survivors in the country.

The project, which is entitled “A house full of light”, is organized for the first time this year and is run in conjunction with municipalities all over the country, which helps the NGO find host families who are willing to pick up the survivors and drive them back home after the holiday dinner.

According to the organization, over 320 survivors have already been invited for the occasion and registrations for participation only opened a few days ago.

"I could not believe that anyone would ever want to and agree to host me for the holiday,” a 79-year-old survivor from Lod said on Sunday.
