Ahada Bereavement Counselling
Aish UK was created in 1993 to offer inspiring and relevant Jewish education and experiences for young Jews in the UK. We believe that the Jewish tradition is not only deep and fulfilling, but also relevant, engaging and compelling to the young person today.
Over the past 20 years, theory has been born out by practice. The demand for trips, events and courses has grown enormously. Today Aish serves almost every high school with a sizeable Jewish population, and University Jewish Societies from Durham to Bristol. We run young professionals branches and programmes in Manchester, Hampstead, Essex and the City of London.
‘To translate the wisdom, depth and beauty of our heritage to young British Jews.’

Arts Therapies For Children (ATFC) provide Art and Play therapy for children struggling with a diverse range of behavioural and emotional difficulties. We strongly believe that timely interventions offered to children whilst they are young can prevent issues becoming entrenched and continuing into adolescence and adulthood.
Sessions are held within the school as we feel that the best place for a child to receive therapy is a place where they feel safe and during times when they are not exhausted after a long day.
Working collaboratively with the school enables the therapist to observe the children at play or in class and meet with teachers, SENCO’s and parents in order to provide the best possible support for each child.

Founded in July 1915 in Whitechapel, Ben Uri has proudly been at the forefront of Yiddish culture and British art for over 100 years. The museum is the oldest cultural institution in the community. Today it is universally acclaimed for its role in protecting, acquiring, educating, and celebrating the artistic achievements of European Jewish artists, and sharing their rich contribution with some 400,000 people a year from across the cultural divides.
The museum has no endowment and no guaranteed income and relies on its own efforts and your generosity and shared vision.
Ben-Gurion University of the Negev is an oasis of innovation that serves as a model for the world. Unique among Israeli universities, Ben-Gurion University (BGU) was established in 1969 as a vehicle for the social, economic and scientific transformation of the Negev.
Today BGU has succeeded beyond expectations, with five campuses, building an academic institution that is deeply rooted in the local community whilst achieving international recognition for its inspired scholarship and thought-leading research.
The University is however, far more than a collection of campuses, faculties and schools. BGU builds bridges and promotes peace between Israel and its neighbours through collaboration in science and research. It is a link between science and industry, Israel and the developing world.
BGU is a university with a conscience – where the highest academic and scientific standards are integrated with community outreach, and where the pioneering spirit of discovery flourishes, fulfilling the dream of David Ben-Gurion, Israel’s first Prime Minister, to make the desert bloom.
Since its inception, one of BGU’s primary goals has been to establish a more equitable society for the people of the Negev region, many of whom are underprivileged. In many ways, the Negev is still considered the “periphery” of Israel, and many of its residents are immigrants who arrived in Israel from the former Soviet Union, Ethiopia and other countries.

Together with these we support programmes reaching the gifted and talented, as well as Israeli soldiers.

Created in 1991, the Israel Guide Dog Centre for the Blind was established to train and supply guide dogs to an increasing number of blind Israelis who were unable to obtain a dog from an English-speaking centre abroad. Hundreds of partnerships have now been created at our centre that is located not far from Rishon L’Zion at Beit Oved. Each partnership costs some 15,000 for the life long care of the guide dog, training and aftercare. A legacy or gift will help provide another pair of eyes to the growing number of blind persons who ‘look’ to us to help restore their independence and dignity.

Rambam Medical Center in Haifa aspires to lead in all aspects of medical care on behalf of the two million population living in Northern Israel. Paediatrics is a speciality as is research to increase knowledge of the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of childhood diseases.
An underground emergency hospital in case of terrorist attacks has now been inaugurated. The hospital is just by the port area in Haifa and near to chemical factories, and thus vulnerable to enemy action in times of war. Incubators for babies, ventilators, beds for the burns unit, infusion pumps, dialysis machines and monitors, and special chairs and equipment for the chemotherapy department are all needed.
Bequests are truly appreciated for all departments. Donations always acknowledged. Plaques and commemorations available.
Tiferet Shlomo provides a safe and loving home for neglected, orphaned and homeless children who originate from all over the world.

Your donation now, or a bequest in your will, will help to give another Jewish child the chance to begin again with real hope for the future.

For over a century JNF UK has played a vital role in building the land of Israel. In our early years we bought land, planted trees, drained swamps and built the infrastructure of a functioning state.
Today JNF UK has adapted its mission to meet the challenges facing the State of Israel in the 21st Century. Today most of our work takes place in the Negev, the vast desert region in Israel’s south. We build early childhood centres, invest in youth projects, educate underprivileged students and support farmers who need to protect their land. We are turning the Negev green and enriching people’s quality of life.

Fact: almost everyone who reads this will be confronted with the trauma of hearing loss at some time in their lives – or most certainly have a loved one who will. Deafness can totally isolate people from family, friends and colleagues.
For over 60 years, JDA has provided professional, personalised care and support for everyone with a hearing loss. We support families after the devastating diagnosis of their newborn baby’s deafness; provide invaluable support services to help people of all ages adapt to traumatic changes as they lose their hearing, and give compassionate care to older Deaf and Deafblind people – who may have dementia and are vulnerable to abuse and cruelty – through daily life, illness, hospitalisation, bereavement and end-of-life care.
No longer can a one size fits all approach to Jewish education guarantee either successful engagement or continuity of the younger generation. JFT exists in order to present young people with a diverse range of educational opportunities and experiences from which to choose.
Built upon decades of experience in both formal and informal education, JFT organizations represent a broad portfolio of dynamic and innovative initiatives and approaches, each providing a different yet equally compelling and vibrant opportunity to connect. Each organization has a proud track record of success in attracting, educating and inspiring young Jewish people, whilst promoting best practice and non-duplication of resources.
A charitable investment in JFT is a palpable contribution to Jewish continuity that ensures bright Jewish futures for our younger generation.

Malki Foundation uniquely supports thousands of Israeli families who care at home for a child with severe disabilities. We provide them with the means to obtain paramedical therapy sessions (physical, occupational, speech, hydrotherapy, and horse-riding) when Israel’s government-mandated safety net runs out or when, for bureaucratic reasons that no parent can accept, the system says no.
For families in Israel’s peripheral communities where therapists are scarce, our supervised therapists travel directly to the child’s home. Malki Foundation also provides home-care equipment enabling families to keep a child with severe special needs at home rather than succumb to institutionalization for lack of realistic alternatives.
Founded in 2001 by parents who understand the need, we are passionate, efficient, and effective.

Selected Jewish students in the Essex area are assisted in funding a pre-university year on an approved study and training course in Israel with the understanding that they have a commitment to future communal involvement. The scheme’s success over nearly two decades has been the number of the Scholars who have become deeply involved in community leadership.

Our nineteen chaplains also provide extensive home hospitality, pastoral support on a host of welfare issues, and original Jewish education.
A main part of our charitable organization’s remit involves working collaboratively with local Jewish communities and organizations across the country to plan and develop for the future of Jewish student life.While students come and go, Chaplaincy ensures that the infrastructure is in place year-after-year, providing consistency and stability in the ever-changing university environment.
Our chaplains and chaplaincy couples are there for all Jewish students to provide a warm, non-judgmental, vibrant, inclusive and inspiring Jewish environment on campus.

World Jewish Relief is the UK Jewish community’s international humanitarian agency.
The expertise that we have developed over more than 80 years means that we tackle Jewish poverty, primarily in the Former Soviet Union, and reach beyond our community.
We create opportunities for those out of work or living with disability to become self-reliant; we meet the physical and emotional needs of older people; and we respond to the immediate and longer-term recovery needs of those affected by catastrophic disasters worldwide.
We work through trusted local partners, enabling individuals and communities to support themselves.
We do all of this as an expression of the Jewish ethos to: ‘Anticipate charity by preventing poverty’ (Maimonides).

Suppose you are a parent whose child has been diagnosed with cancer and your whole world has come to an end. Suppose you are a boy or girl, suddenly in pain and discomfort, being examined and prodded by doctors, living in hospital away from your family and friends. Now relax because there is a loving, caring organization that can bring hope out of despair. The therapeutic effect of all that Zichron Menachem does, including its Jerusalem Day Centre and camps in the UK and Holland has to be seen to be believed. ZM services are available to all Israeli families.
We cannot take the sickness away from the child but Zichron Menachem takes the child away from the sickness.
