18 Adar 5778
This Pesach, Mazon Australia again invites members of UPJ congregations to sanctify their Seder tables,
lift the “bread of affliction” and support those “doing it hard” on the streets of our fortunate country.
The 5778 Mazon Pesach Appeal will be collecting funds from individuals equal to the cost of one additional dinner guest and providing these financial resources to our friends at OzHarvest (ozharvest.org).
Since its inception in 2004, OzHarvest has cemented its position as a leader in the rescue of quality
excess food from commercial outlets and delivering it directly to more than 1000 charities supporting
people in need. Its mission: to educate, innovate and to engage volunteers has been embraced in cities throughout our country and increasingly, in countries around the world.
So this Pesach, bring additional meaning to your Seder meal by making a contribution to Mazon. You,
your family and your Seder guests will be sharing your festival joy with others and providing a meaningful, Jewish response to hunger.
