Our Gala Dinner held on 25th February at Avenue was an absolute success. A massive thank you to everyone who helped make it a such a triumph.
The vital friendship and support you have shown will contribute to giving Jewish children around the world the help they desperately need.
Blue-ish Jewish took part on 7th and 9th February. Now in its 5th year – more schools took part than ever before. Money has all been counted and this raised over £3,700. Thank you to all your gorgeous children who took part.
We re-launched our child sponsorship programme. For as little as £100 per year, you can change the life of a child who lives below the poverty line.

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.
Our annual trip took place a few weeks ago and for all those that came with us, thank you.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org
Our Rosh Hashanah appeal was sent out and on behalf of all the children you have helped this year…. Thank you so much.
Project of the Month
Striving for Life – Vitebsk, Belarus
This project aims to promote the healthy development of 10 special needs children through physical training, swimming, computer lessons, horse-riding lessons and massage treatment.
Earlier this summer, the project started with physical training lessons with a qualified fitness instructor who himself was diagnosed with cerebral palsy and managed to overcome the disease owing to exercising and sports. He sets the perfect example of how determination and character can work miracles in recovery.
I think we can all agree, a project well deserving of our support.
Party@thePalace took place on Sunday 23rd June at Alexandra Palace in North London. It was a fun packed afternoon of entertainment for all the family in aid of Camp Simcha and Jewish Child’s Day. It was a great success with over 3,000 people attending and it raised much needed funds for both charities – helping children in need. Thank you so much for coming and supporting us – see you there next year.
