In doing so, you also perform the traditional mitzvah of enabling people who are in need to celebrate the Passover holiday through this tzedakah contribution (commonly called maot chitim).To fulfill this mitzvah through the agency of Rabbi Zedek, you may make a check payable to Emanuel Congregation in whatever amount, noting ‘maot chitim’ or ‘Vasilkov’ on the memo line, and send it after having completed form below to:
