Coles Supermarket at Sydney’s Westfield Bondi Junction is asking shoppers to buy something extra for Passover: donate Kosher LePesach food for those in need.
The store has placed a huge crate immediately passed their check-outs for shoppers in which to place their contributions towards making it a momarable Pesach for Sydney’s Jewish needy. When full, the Jewish House will empty in preparation for the next flurry of shoppers.
Coles Kosher NSW co-ordinator Uri Butnaru told J-Wire: “We at Coles are very pleased to be involved with such a worthy cause knowing the good work that the Jewish House does within the Jewish community under Rabbi Mendel Kastel‘s leadership, especially at this time preceding the Festival of Pesach. it’s a great cause.”
Rabbi Mendel Kastel suggested the idea to Coles during a seminar held by the company to educate their staff on Kosher LePesach products.
He said: “They welcomed and embraced the idea which we saw come to fruition this morning.”
