This Pesach Yeshiva Gedola Leaves No Jew Behind

It has become a tradition in Kingsley Way. The bochurim of Yeshiva Gedola Lubavitch London, use the final Sunday in yeshiva, to spend several hours packing shmurah matzoh. These matzos are for the Jews of the area of Hampstead Garden Suburb, where the yeshiva is. Baaleibatim from the Kingsley way Beis Medrash, under the leadership of Rabbi Yitzchok Meir Hertz, volunteer to drive them around. They look forward to taking part in this great endeavor.

There are two shifts. At 1:00-3:00pm and at 3:00 to 5:00 pm. Every car takes two bochurim. They drive around the area and look for houses with a mezuzah. Being Sunday, people are home. They ring the bell and offer the homeowner some shmura matzoh. If necessary they’ll tell him or her when and how to use it, and to share it with the other seder participants. If he or she requires it they’ll tell them where they can get more matzoh, find a public seder nearby, or they’ll arrange for a friend or relative to get some matzoh as well. 2000 homes are visited that day!

And so, the Rebbe’s horo’oh that every Jew have shmura Matzoh for the seder is on its way to be fulfilled in London’s Northern suburbs, thanks to the bochurim and shluchim of Yeshiva Gedola and Hampstead Garden Suburb. Thanks to the baaleibatim as well! Notably R’ Harris Sidelsky, R’ Avrohom Weisz and R’ Getsel Itzinger, for all their help in arranging this wonderful project.
