50,000+ boxes of matzah sent to Jews from the former Soviet Union

On March 30, in advance of Passover, the American Joint Jewish Distribution Committee (JDC) distributed matzah to elderly Jews, including the woman pictured here, at the Shaarei Tzion Hesed social welfare center, located in the Beit Grand Jewish Community Center in Odessa, Ukraine. The distribution is part of more than 50,000 boxes of matzah being given to elderly Jews in the former Soviet Union through the IFCJ Food and Medicine Lifeline, JDC’s operational partnership with the International Fellowship of Christians and Jews, as well as through JDC’s partnership with the Claims Conference. Photo courtesy of JDC
