Sinai Memorial makes grants for Passover

Sinai Memorial Chapel has announced its Maot Chitin grants for 2012. Stemming from the Hebrew term meaning “wheat money,” the grants support local kosher-for-Passover food programs.

Grantees include the Jewish Home, for its Passover food budget; the Northern California Board of Rabbis, for a program that delivers Passover food to prisoners; S.F.-based Jewish Family and Children’s Services, for delivering Passover food packages to homebound senior citizens; the Montefiore Senior Center at the JCC of San Francisco, to support its kosher lunch program; and the San Francisco Veterans Admin-istration Center, to support a seder for veterans.

Also, for the 32nd year, Sinai Memorial and the JCCSF co-sponsored a seder in Russian for the Russian-speaking comm-unity.
