Event Series Event Series: Passover Food Drive

The Tzedakah Committee is pleased to announce the 2023 Beth Emet Passover Food Drive. The purpose of the drive is to enable the clients of The ARK to keep Passover by collecting kosher for Passover foods and then donating the food to The ARK’s pantry.

There are two ways to donate:

  • Shop at Mariano’s (3358 W. Touhy Ave., Skokie) on Sunday, March 26 between 10:00 am and 5:30 pm and drop off the Kosher food donations with our volunteers outside the front doors (signs and flyers will be available on site).
  • Purchase food from any grocery store and drop off donations at Beth Emet’s west entrance during business hours between March 20 and March 26.

The ARK will gladly accept any kosher for Passover foods. However, they have also asked us to help collect the following items: canned or jarred gefilte fish; Rashi or Kedem grape juice; kosher for Passover cooking oil; kosher for Passover jelly; and macaroons.

The Tzedakah Committee is also soliciting volunteers for one-hour slots during our collection drive at Mariano’s Sunday, March 26 from 10:00 am – 5:30 pm. Volunteers will distribute flyers about the drive to interested shoppers and transport donated foods from Mariano’s and Beth Emet to The ARK’s warehouse. If you would like to volunteer, please email Neal Shanoff or call 847-302-6332.
