According to the most recent UJA-Federation study, 560,000 Jewish New Yorkers are living at or near the poverty level.
Many of them are your neighbors. You wouldn't know it because they live in a home just like yours.
Unfortunately, some have lost their jobs. Others have a sick relative. Still others just can't make ends meet. They can not afford to buy all the food they need for Rosh Hashanah and Sukkot.

We provide free food to over 70 partner organizations for Rosh Hashanah - from your local JCC to your local synagogue and senior center. Please contribute to allow us the ability to help as many people as possible. With your support, we will provide free quality kosher food to over 100,000 people this Rosh Hashanah and Sukkot!
