“…let all who are hungry come and eat”

Emanuel Synagogue Social Justice Committee together with Mazon Australia is running a

Pesach Drive for the
Asylum Seekers Centre

We are collecting urgently needed non-perishable food items and toiletries.

Bring some light into the life of people in need.

The Asylum Seeker Centre is currently assisting around 1200 people each fortnight with food and essential supplies.
As Pesach approaches, we have the opportunity to bring some light into the world and offer much needed assistance.
We are collecting food and toiletry items most needed.
