It’s all about the children!

Jewish Child’s Day was founded in 1947 to give Jewish children and their families in Britain the opportunity to help children in Europe whose lives had been devastated by the Second World War. Its guiding principle was to educate Jewish children in the UK about the importance of Tzedakah (giving to charity) and chesed (acts of loving kindness) within Jewish law and tradition.

Although the causes have changed, the abiding principle remains the same. Through Jewish Child’s Day’s fundraising activities and events, children can increase their understanding of the continuing relevance of these mitzvot and broaden their experience of social action.

How can your school get involved?

Schools in the UK sharing successful case studies

Many schools have been allocated a grant from Jewish Child’s Day. See below how we have supported many schools.

30 Schools and Cheders made a difference by joining Blue-Ish Jewish 2023.
Each year, Jewish Child’s Day holds a national schools’ fundraising weekend called Blue-ish Jewish.
This year 30 schools and Cheders joined to make a difference, helping to transform the lives of Jewish Children in need – TOGETHER!
Children wore blue and white in return for a minimum donation of £1 – look at how cute and happy they are!
We would like to thank you all for taking part raising Tzedakah for children in need – we all have a duty to be kind and respectful to others so together we can transform the lives of those who most need it!

Our special twinning programme allows children to choose to twin their special day with a child from a very different background – a special needs child from Israel, a child from a small community in Belarus or a child living in a children’s home.

We are certain that whichever route the children will choose, their twinning experience will be something very special – and one that they will cherish forever.

To mark Jewish Child’s Day’s 75th Heritage year we reinstated our Chanukah Card Art Competition with JCoSS secondary school: ‘Find your #innerlight

Year 7 students had to research about Jewish Child’s Day, find their inner creativity and invest time in creating amazing Chanukah card designs.
The winning submissions were transformed into beautiful Chanukah cards that were made available to purchase through our website, raising much needed funds supporting projects that benefit Jewish children who suffer from physical and emotional disabilities, neglect, abuse and financial hardship across the UK, Israel and smaller communities across the world.

The four fantastic winners won an Amazon voucher each – so well deserved!
All the other participants received our festive bookmarks for all their efforts.

Please contact us if you would like your school/Cheder to be part of our  Chanukah competition 2023 on 020 8446 68804 or email
