Yieldstreet Foundation Passover Fundraiser

Michael Weisz during Passover- Yieldstreet Foundation

Dear Friends,

I hope your family is healthy and safe. As we eclipse the one-year mark of COVID-19’s arrival in the United States, it naturally leads us to a time of reflections. I’ve spent time reflecting back to last March and the sense of community that was prevalent with everyone joining together to help support those in need. As a community we’ve all come a long way over the last year, but in some ways, COVID will influence many aspects of how we live forever. I am hopeful that one of the permanent changes will be to maintain that sense of community and the desire to help those who need it. 

On this note, as you are aware, there is a quiet charity project that is particularly close to my heart. Its now been 19 years since I started cooking with Moshe – back in my school days! I have decided again to reach out to a few friends that I thought would appreciate being a part of this wonderful act of kindness.

The first $25,000 donated will be matched by the Yieldstreet Foundation!


Over 25 years ago, a close friend of mine, Moshe Mosbacher, decided to convert his garage in Monsey (at home), into a commercial-grade kitchen and quietly cook meals for an initial 5 families in the NY and NJ area that couldn’t afford the exorbitant cost Passover presents. The effort has grown over the years, and we now cook for over 100 families! These families are often able to support themselves throughout the year but cannot absorb the additional cost for Pesach.

Passover is days away. This year, Moshe will be cooking ~20,000 meals for these families . The project will cost approximately $260,000 and is undertaken by a small group of generous individuals like yourself. 

In addition to monetary donations, there are many in the food business that have donated (or provided discounted pricing on) raw ingredients such as meat, onions, potatoes, and fish, which all help to bring down the cost per meal.  

Project Breakdown (estimate)    

Number of families200
Average family size8
Meals per person13
Total meals:20,800
Cost per meal$12.50
Cost per family for Pesach$1,300
Total project cost$260K

In the past, many have enjoyed participating in-person to help cook. Unfortunately, once again this year, we will not be open to volunteers in an effort to meet social distancing requirements.

Passover will be different again this year as we’ll be surrounded by fewer people than we’d hoped – but we are healthy and will have a beautiful table setting. Let us all be thankful for that. Thank you so much and have a wonderful Passover!
