The Jewish Child’s Day Song Here To Stay, which was launched at Party@thePark on Sunday 11th October has surpassed all expectation. Within 48 hours of going live, the song achieved over 5,000 views and numbers are still rising!
“The launch of our first song Here to Stay is an important milestone for us”, commented Melanie Klass “It is at the heart of what we do which is all about children helping children” she added. “To launch the song, at our flagship community event seemed apt!”

Project of the Month 

 Ohr Meir & Bracha -The Terror Victims Support Center – Jerusalem, Israel

Ohr Meir & Bracha help meet the needs of victims of terror and their families.  Terror attacks destroy the lives not only of those who perish but also those who survive.  Many victims may not receive help because their injuries are deemed insufficient to be recognised as medical disabilities or because they are still in the process of being assessed for disability.  Ohr Meir & Bracha gives immediate assistance whenever possible.

Very dear friends of Jewish Child’s Day took their daughter about to embark on her Bat Mitzvah to visit Ohr Meir & Bracha and they put on such a lovely welcome and celebration, that it took her breath away.

The sun shone as did the lovely Renee Salt who travelled with us to give people an insight into the years that she spent there.

We have received wonderful feedback….

“What a wonderful experience – a trip that will live on in my mind for ever and one that every Jew and non-Jew should make”.

 “We both feel humbled to have been included and will be encourage our friends and family to make the trip too”.

 “There is really no substitute to see it for yourself.  Renee added a very special extra perspective that was invaluable.  She really is a special lady”.

If you didn’t get the chance to come with us, please do think about making the trip next year. To register your interest, please email natasha.brookner@jcd.uk.com
