Chametz Drive

JAA runs an annual chametz drive at all the Jewish schools in Australia.

JAA collects your chametz at Jewish schools all over Australia and distributes it to organisations that feed those in who are hungry and doing it tough. We partner with the following organisations Fareshare (Melbourne), Ozharvest (Sydney) and Foodbank WA (Perth)

We ask students to please bring tinned food and other non-perishable items to school the week before Pesach and place them in the specially marked Chametz Drive bins.

Testimonials: 

“Education is most effective when it takes place in a memorable manner and it leaves the students with tangible opportunities to implement their knowledge in the real world. The work of Jewish Aid Australia with the Expanding Horizons program achieves this task in a manner that is far superior to most other programs we run because:
1) The JAA ethos is very similar to that of the progressive values of the school.
2) The JAA leaders are young, dynamic and understand the psyche of our students.
3) JAA are passionate about creating real change in the world based on the principles of the Jewish prophets who seek a more just society.” –
