Volunteers from Tikvat Israel farmed out across the roads of Rockville and surrounding neighborhoods in Montgomery County to deliver Passover supplies to shut-ins and the needy on Sunday, April 14, as part of Project H.O.P.E.

Delivering the bags of Passover staples – which included bottles of grape wine, matzah, matzah meal and horseradish – were Janice Balin, Edna Breit, Louise Chatlynne, Bobbi Cohen, Steven Eiserike, Marsha Fabel, Robin and Stan Hein and Hilda Springer. The coordinators were Moira and Leon Green.

“We had an abundance of volunteers offering to participate in this mitzvah, and we thank them too,” Moira Green said.

Project H.O.P.E. — Help Our People Everywhere — is a community action project whose major goal is the collection and distribution of food packages to poor and elderly Jews during Passover. The project is organized across the Northeastern U.S. by B’nai B’rith.
