Tomchei Shabbos provides food and financial support to families and individuals in need

Who We Are and What We Do

Our mission is to provide food and financial support to needy families and individuals in the greater Passaic / Clifton community.

Tomchei Shabbos of Passaic-Clifton has been serving the needy in our community for more than 35 years by discretely providing them with essential food staples and scrip used for food purchases. Tomchei Shabbos’ beneficiaries – all local community members – include working families, unemployed, single parents, widow(er)s and those suffering from debilitating illness, all of whom struggle to make ends meet. We provide a broad array of essential groceries, more than Shabbos food alone, to close to 80 families. We do our utmost to insure their privacy and dignity while maintaining their peace of mind and self-esteem.
