WHAT'S ON

Mazon Pesach Appeal

Each year, Mazon chair Rabbi Gary Robuck asks our communities to donate to the Pesach Appeal to raise awareness around the Seder table of the importance our people attach to ma’achil re’evim - feeding the hungry. 

Soon, Jews throughout Australia will gather at their Seder tables to celebrate Pesach. Most will enjoy sumptuous feasts and the warm company of friends and family. At the same time, however, individuals near to home - in the cities of Australia and in its rural outback - will go to bed without sufficient food to eat. For them, the “bread of affliction” is not a symbol but a constant and unwelcomed companion. This year, the incongruity of our celebration and their suffering can be made less acute by making a simple, tax-deductible donation to the Mazon Australia Pesach appeal.  

Making this small gesture will raise awareness around the table of the importance our people attach to ma’achil re’evim - feeding the hungry. Supporting Mazon Australia at Pesach also gives concrete expression to the imperative found at the very start of the Pesach narrative: “Let all who are hungry come and eat…
