Maos Chitim, derived from the Hebrew for “wheat money,” has its roots in the haggadah, which reads, “All who are hungry, let them enter and eat. All who are in need, let them come celebrate Pesach.”

For over 45 years, members of our community, now led by Allan Tanenbaum, have raised money for the Maos Chitim Fund at Passover. Last year Maos Chitim provided money to more than 600 families, many of them Jewish Family & Career Services clients, to purchase Passover food, and the fund gave food baskets to 215 families.
