Kimcha D'Pischa - "Flour for Passover"    

Kimcha D'Pischa - "Flour for Passover"

Jewish law requires us to be concerned about the poor, especially those in Jerusalem before Passover. Holiday expenditures make life even more difficult...


Kimcha D’Pischa is Aramaic for “Flour for Passover.” It is a tradition that dates back to the days of the Jerusalem Talmud. In those days, families were asked to set aside some flour for baking matzot for poor families that could not afford to buy flour.  


Many very needy families do their best to conceal their true financial plight. Our Kimcha D’Pischa – Flour for Passover Fund identifies, reaches and supplies these impoverished families with all their basic food needs for the Passover holiday, enabling them to enjoy a truly joyous holiday. The Gemara promises that when we make the holidays joyous for others, Hashem makes our holidays joyous for us. 


Jewish law requires us to be concerned about the welfare of the poor, and especially the poor of Jerusalem. This is especially true before Passover, when the many holiday expenditures make life even more difficult for already struggling families 


Because of the Coronavirus, the Israeli economy is reeling. This year, more families than ever need your help. Even with the situation – we cannot forget these poor families! 


A donation of $250 (900NIS) enables us to provide a family with the basic foodstuffs needed for Passover including matza, wine, meat, fruit, vegetables, and more. You cannot imagine the magnitude of this mitzvah and the joy your contribution brings to a poor family in Jerusalem. Donations of $500 enable us to provide for large families of 8 or more, and $180 provides for small families with a few small children. 


The Gemara promises that when we worry about His children – He worries about us, and our children. The greater the donation with greater self-sacrifice, the greater the blessing you invoke on you and yours. 


You can make your donation  to  Chut  shel  Chessed’s  Kimcha D’Pischa food for Passover program here.
