| PASSOVER 2014

 Mada’s annual effort to bring the warmth and joy of traditional Passover Seders and holiday meals to those who are alone or without means, met with great success. During the two weeks before and during Passover, over 500 volunteers peeled, chopped, processed and cooked over 10,000 pounds of fresh produce, 2000 pounds of salmon and 1300 chickens. Delicious three course meals, complete with the traditional Seder plates, handmade Shmurah matzah , wine, beverages and desserts  were elegantly served to all participants. The recital of the Hagaddah, and joyous Passover songs created an environment of joy and meaning.

As Andrea Lozoff, a participant at the Gelber location commented, “The lovely atmosphere of the children and the caring of the volunteers made the evening a delight!”

During the week of Passover, the kitchen and cafeteria at Mada continued in full swing, serving hot Kosher for Passover daily and holiday meals. 1400 Shabbat to Share boxes were delivered for Shabbat and holiday meals thanks to Mada’s indispensable and devoted volunteers and drivers.

Mada volunteer, Ruth, summed it up, “Knowing that so many in our community benefited from the true joy and warmth of Passover is so meaningful to me. Passover has taken on a  new dimension in my life”!
