Hundreds of families will get a dose of nourishment and nurturing this Shabbat thanks to a special care package from Friendship Circle in Livingston, N.J.
The “Challah and Chicken Soup for the Quarantined Soul” package includes rolls, grape juice, kiddush cup, Shabbat candles and homemade chicken soup (matzah balls were optional).
Organizers had initially planned for about 125 care packages, but word got out and the requests started pouring in. Families were also offered the opportunity to pick up Shabbat packages for their homebound neighbors. Read more here on JNS.org.
