Chai Lifeline Provides Critical Support to Families for Pesach 

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

This Yom Tov, 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 crisis. With offerings ranging from hospital sedarim and meal deliveries to home cleanings, car washes, and financial assistance through the Evan Levy Z”L Fund, Chai Lifeline’s regions across the United States are hard at work to mitigate the stress and hardship of Yom Tov preparations of more than 6,000 families affected by medical crises.
