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.

Blue-ish Jewish

Each year, Jewish Child’s Day holds a national schools’ fundraising day called Blue-ish Jewish.

Pupils are encouraged to wear blue in return for a minimum donation of £1. Schools and Chedrerim nationwide participate in this fun event which raises over £3000 each year for some very worthy projects. More than this, it’s an important opportunity to increase awareness amongst young participants about the problems faced by their peers around the world.

Twinning your Bar/Bat Mitzvah with Jewish Child’s Day

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.
