The Hinda Institute provides a home away from home for our families who need a warm accepting place for the holidays or services.  

We also deliver packages and food to our families on the holidays. 

  • Some of our families need food more frequently due to poverty issues and can’t afford to celebrate the holidays.
  • Many of our families feel isolated on the holidays either because they live in far suburbs or because they feel self-conscious attending Jewish places of worship in their communities.
  • All of our families no matter the circumstance, appreciate being remembered on the holidays.


Please help us by volunteering to deliver packages or by sponsoring packages(Only 25$ sponsors a package for a family).


We want to thank our many volunteers who help deliver or make packages.  You have a difference in people’s lives. A special thank
you to Barb Teeple of “Keeping Souls Connected” for assisting with monthly deliveries. 





The Hinda Institute provides regular classes in spirituality from a Jewish perspective to help families cope with challenges.

Hinda Hero 

A. has an only son with mental health issues who is incarcerated. A is working 3 jobs to help support herself and her visits to her son. At the time of these texts, she just broke her knee and was under considerable financial stress during Passover and due to the COVID9 crisis. She lives in the suburbs far from any Jewish Community. The Hinda Institute visited her and then delivered a meal for Passover. Following are the texts we received in response:

►You have made an amazing difference in my life during a time of such uncertainty. Much appreciated.

►Thanks for stopping by. It was nice to see you and your friend and receive Matzah and a Haggadah.

►Feeling better today; I am on strong pain medicine and antibiotics.

►Thank you for the nicest Passover meal. I have been looking for gefilteh fish!!!! The eggs symbolize the Life cycle. I used them in tuna salad. I even got toilet paper!!
