Maot Hittin

It is particularly appropriate that, as we recall the forging of the Jewish people into a unit during the Exodus, we express our solidarity with all our Jewish brothers and sisters. It is a time-honored practice to distribute aid to needy Jews for meeting the special expenses connected with Pesah. This aid is called maot hittin, "wheat money," for originally it was distributed in order for people to buy wheat to be ground into Pesah flour.

One may discharge one's obligation to aid the needy at Pesah time individually or through the synagogue. Rabbi Barnard collects maot hittin through the Rabbi's Discretionary Fund at the synagogue. We should also support the Cincinnati Pesach Delivery Project, which provides seder essentials for families in our community. This project, which began at Northern Hills Synagogue, is now run by Jewish Family Service.
