For the ninth year in a row, Addison Reserve families have participated in a Jewish Federation of South Palm Beach County "Adopt-a-Project," which provides food for Passover to those in need in the Boca/Delray area.
This year, nearly 200 Addison families raised over $21,000 to purchase food. On March 25, more than 45 volunteers gathered at the new Jacobson Family Food Pantry at Jewish Family Service facility in Delray Beach to package 475 bags of Passover groceries for distribution.
The Mitzvah Project committee, consisting of Joyce Goldbaum, Don Kabat, Harvey Leff, Harriet Mironov, Patti Jacobs, Ronna Rutstein, Pam Siegman and Harvey P. Stein, led the effort to make sure that less fortunate members of our Jewish community are able to observe Passover at home for eight days.
Patti Jacobs, Mitzvah Project co-chair referred to the project as a "kinship of spirit."
