I AM A GUEST
who is considering symbolically inviting the hungry to my host's Seder.
ON ALL OTHER NIGHTS IT IS RUDE
TO BRING DINNER GUESTS WITHOUT ASKING OUR HOST.
WHY IS THIS NIGHT DIFFERENT?
Every Passover, we read aloud from the Haggadah: "Let all who are hungry come and eat."
In keeping with this principle, Mazon's DAYENU Program lets you symbolically invite the hungry to share in the Passover feast by providing meals to hungry people across Canada.
Though your host may not be expecting them, your symbolic guests are anything but uninvited. They recieved their invitation last year, and the year before, and the year before that.
Their invitation is open-ended, spanning centuries.
As we gather together for Passover -- many of us for the first time in years -- heed the Haggadah and honour your host by inviting the hungry to the Seder table with the DAYENU Program.
WITH YOUR GIFT, YOU GET:
A PRINTED CARD or ECARD
This card can contain a personalized message from you (or your family), and let your host know the number people across Canada you're nourishing on their behalf.
