Getting ready for Passover is hard enough, but for families facing pediatric illness and medical crises, holiday preparations can feel impossible. Chai Lifeline, the Jewish community’s leading health support network, is there to help every step of the way so families can focus on what truly matters most—the health and well-being of their loved ones. 

This Passover, Chai Lifeline is once again setting the standard for compassion and support, providing a comprehensive array of services designed to ease the burden for families navigating medical situations. With offerings ranging from hospital seders and meal deliveries to home cleanings, car washes and financial assistance through the Evan Levy Fund, Chai Lifeline’s regions across the United States are hard at work to mitigate the stress and hardship of Pesach preparations of more than 6,000 families affected by medical crises.

In Chai Lifeline regions such as New Jersey/Pennsylvania, services extend to car and house cleanings, koshering services and a pre-Pesach day camp for children and their siblings. The Greater New York area will see car-wash services, pre-Pesach dinner programs and special Pesach afikomen toy box packages for children, among other support activities. The Midwest region is hosting a pre-Pesach program complete with haircuts, dinner and engaging activities for kids, along with essential services and gifts to ease the holiday preparations.

The Mid-Atlantic region’s offerings include pre-Passover car-cleaning in collaboration with the Baltimore Chesed League and care packages filled with holiday essentials. In the Southeast, families will receive financial support for food purchases and a special children’s program to uplift spirits. West Coast families are being treated to personalized kits to ensure that they have everything needed for a meaningful and joyous holiday.

“Amidst the preparations and celebrations of Pesach, it’s crucial to remember those in our community facing unimaginable challenges,” said Rabbi Simcha Scholar, CEO of Chai Lifeline. “Every gesture of support is a step towards lightening their load, allowing them to embrace the Yom Tov [‘holiday’] with peace of mind. At Chai Lifeline, we’re not just offering help—we’re offering hope, demonstrating that compassion and community can transform the Pesach experience for families in need.”
