Dear Friend,

I’m writing you today with important news, and to ask for your help.

Because there was once a small nation that struggled against a world superpower.  The small nation just wanted to be free and left alone. To live their lives as they saw fit.

Does this sound familiar? It may. Because this is the story of Passover.

Passover is important because it’s a gift we’ve received as a nation. It’s an inspiration to us … and to the whole world…

Because Passover celebrates freedom. And how we can be free even when the odds are against you.

I’m hoping you can donate $180 — or maybe $360 --  to help make Passover a reality for people in our community this year.

I know you may want to focus your giving on Ukraine right now. As we all should.

But, if you can, remember those who so urgently need to experience the blessing and connection of Passover here in Montreal.

In scary and uncertain times, it’s more important than ever!

The COVID pandemic, with its loneliness and uncertainty. And fear about what might happen next.

It seems like as soon as we start to get a handle on things, something else pops up. Another wave of Covid. Inflation. Antisemitism. And now war!

Passover is a time when we remember the hard times ... and how we survive together. For centuries, we Jews have been gathering for Passover --

ever since that very first time when G‑d brought us out of Egypt.

This year so many people urgently need that message and connection…

We are no strangers to difficulty. Together we have the strength and tenacity to overcome. But it all starts with Passover…

Remembering the story, the difficulties, and ultimately the redemption…

And that’s where you come in: Could you join the Passover Campaign and donate to help make Passover a reality for people here in the

community who otherwise might miss it?

Your donation of $180 — or maybe $360 — will make a place at our table for someone who’s looking for a Seder to join.

Or send someone seder supplies like Matzah. Plus, you will help those learn about the holiday so they can have a more meaningful celebration.

Passover helps make us who we are — as individuals, as families, and as a people.

But Passover doesn’t “just happen.” It requires caring people, all doing their part. It needs people like YOU, or it doesn’t happen.

This year, it’s so important…

Chabad Zichron Kedoshim is a place to bring your fears and your loneliness…and to share love, warmth, kindness and of course…

crispy crunchy matzah and piping hot delicious chicken soup.

And the place to get the strength to go on, living as part of our Jewish community, connected with each other.

Connected through the centuries all the way back to the time of Moses.

The message of Passover is as important and timely as ever. We need to share strength, courage, and convictions.

And we can’t do it without you.

Please consider sending your gift today so we can make the proper preparations in time for Passover.

Thank you for your consideration and for reading.

Wishing you a Happy and Joyous Passover,


Rabbi Ronnie & Simcha Fine
