Passover drives through Simsbury

On Sunday, March 21, members of Farmington Valley Jewish Congregation-Emek Shalom (FVJC) in Simsbury handed out Passover treat bags to 80 members who attended the congregation’s Passover Drive-Through event. Congregants were greeted by Rabbi Bekah Goldman (pictured here at the drive-through greeting a congregant) and a group of volunteers who presented them with bags containing unique ‘plagues’ bags, a special Haggadah compiled by Rabbi Bekah for a community second Zoom seder, and a Yom HaShoah remembrance candle. This is the third such event hosted by FVJC since the pandemic started. Each event is also paired with a Social Action Committee collection – in this case, a small mountain of diapers were collected for Gifts of Love in Avon. Volunteers also delivered treat bags to members who were unable to leave their homes.
