We might not see them, but there are children-at-risk everywhere.
It is deeply shocking to hear about and even more tragic to see, but child abuse and child neglect directly affect the Jewish community. These are real issues in Eastern Europe, Israel and right here in the UK.
Fortunately, Jewish Child’s Day is in a position to make a real difference to these childrens’ lives. Through our partner projects, we have intervened in each of the cases you will read about in the enclosed mailer.
- Hannah is supported by a North London organisation that provides emotional, practical and therapeutic support to vulnerable adolescent Jewish girls. She receives mentoring and counselling and is being monitored by social services.
- Pietr and his siblings are being supported by a project in Eastern Europe which takes a holistic approach to address his physical, emotional and financial needs.
- Eyal is now living in a children’s home in Netanya, Israel which Jewish Child’s Day supports to provide a loving, safe, familiar environment for children-at-risk.
It is our belief that every child, no matter what challenges they may face, should be entitled to a life of opportunity and a chance for a brighter future.
This Rosh Hashanah, with your support, we can continue to help Hannah, Pietr and Eyal and thousands of other vulnerable Jewish children all over the world.
Thank you in advance for your generosity.
Wishing you and your family a Happy New Year.
