JCC Kaleidoscope and PJ Library Partner to Support Ukrainian Jewish Community

Care Package for Ukraine

Kaleidoscope kids are leading our efforts to support the Ukrainian Jewish community during this uncertain time. As the holiday of Passover approached on Monday, March 31, 15 children gathered after school to put together a care package to send overseas to the Mazal Tov JCC in Zaporizhzhia, Ukraine. The PJ Library donated 10 new books to surprise the Jewish children in Zaporizhzhia. The children were so excited to share some of their favorite stories with their friends overseas. In addition, the children decorated Kiddush cups to send and packaged a variety of chocolate Passover-themed foods like chocolate macaroons to use in a kid-friendly Chocolate Seder. Two new, bound and laminated hagaddot and several non-laminated haggadah copies were sent, as well. The children should receive their Chocolate Seder care package just in time for Passover! We hope this is the beginning of a wonderful cultural exchange between our children and the children of the Ukrainian JCC as we continue to connect with and support the JCC in Ukraine!
