The name Maos Chitim, which means “Money for Wheat” goes back to Talmudic days, when communities assumed the responsibility to provide Passover food to Jews in need.

As we see a dramatic rise in antisemitism around the world, we must step up now more than ever to help our own. We realize that times continue to be tight for many, but the families helped through the Maos Chitim Fund truly depend on us. Your gift allows us to provide food and money so every Jewish family can celebrate Passover with pride and dignity.

About Maos Chitim

For over 50 years, a lay-led Maos Chitim Community Committee has collected money quietly to provide both funds and food to our community’s needy for Passover. 

Maos Chitim should not be confused with Tzedakah. Even if one already has given to charity throughout the year, he or she is instructed to give, within one’s ability, to this Fund.

Jewish Family & Career Services assists in administering the fund and coordinates the distribution of money and food for Passover to those in need this year.
