Some messages:

During this very trying period, the seasons continue to change, the calendar wheel keeps on turning, and Pesach, the festival of freedom and of spring, is in the wings.

We are presently tackling an extraordinary workload, and have these requests to make of you:

  1. As of this writing, we have reached the limit of our field’s capacity, and we cannot accept any new clients. Kindly save your recommendations for your friends and family to join Chubeza till the return of calmer days.
  2. We beg you: Please make all changes to your regular order before the deadline. If you need our help, contact us by email (preferably), SMS or telephone. We are truly straining under the load.
  3. To reduce contact with our deliverymen, at this point we are no longer collecting empty cartons to recycle. We look forward to collecting them once again, when the time comes.
  4. From April we will be charging your credit cards weekly. If this creates a problem for you, let us know.

This week we’re happy to share a picture of the joyful, festive springtime.

Reminding us that even though this year, as spring bursts into the air while we’re cooped up at home, far from friends and family, it’s only a temporary situation. Time is still flowing, bringing change in its wake.

As the vivid colors and togetherness shine from this picture, may you feel the growth and good changes during this time as well!

Wishing everyone good, healthy and resilient days, now and in times to come.

Wishing you a Chag Sameach and a happy month of Nisan,

Alon, Bat Ami, Dror, Yochai, Orin and the Chubeza team
