For many the cost of hearing aids and therapy might as well be a million pounds.

Deaf children, if given the correct early intervention, are able to integrate into mainstream society. If they miss out, few will ever catch up and will be dependent on us for the rest of their lives.

At Shema Kolenu early intervention, together with pioneering medical science and technology, are crucial to unlocking a child's ‘silent’ world. Our medical team, including ENT specialists, speech, musical and movement therapists, ensure that each child is accommodated along with their related/unrelated disabilities and we support the parents coping with this unexpected trauma and challenge. Our regional branches throughout Israel cater for all. Find out more by contacting

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.

Since 2002, Nefesh B'Nefesh has revitalized Western Aliyah by minimizing the financial, professional, logistical and social obstacles that potential Olim face. The organisation assists Olim throughout the entire Aliyah process, from the planning stage to well beyond arrival, helping ensure their successful absorption into Israeli society. To date, Nefesh B Nefesh has brought over 30,000 Olim, and has helped streamline their Aliyah by offering Employment Resources, Expedited Aliyah Processing, Group Aliyah Flights, Financial Assistance and Post-Aliyah Support Services. Working in close partnership with the Jewish Agency for Israel and the Israeli Government, we expanded our services to the UK in May 2006. Our ability to provide assistance for Olim, who are the lifeblood of the State of Israel, depends on charitable donations and legacies.

‘CANCER’ – the one word that can provoke our deepest fears. Nothing can be more important in Society than the health and welfare of our children. They represent our future and there is ample evidence that appropriate investment in their health and welfare pays unparalleled dividends for the future.

In the ever-advancing world of medicine, Rachashei Lev stays focused. With a team of 500 volunteers and 21 professional staff we offer ongoing quality recreational, educational and financial support programmes. We passionately believe in the power of fun to overcome the challenges that cancer brings. That’s why you’ll find that fun flows through absolutely everything we do – from our programmes to our entire philosophy.

Friends of the Sick (Chevrat Bikkur Cholim) provides assistance to the sick and the frail in the Jewish Community. We believe no one should have to cope with illness or old age on their own. We send paid carers to look after our patients; some of them have little or no family support around them. Our approach is informal. We aim to respond promptly to requests for help. Many of our clients cannot afford the cost of our subsidised carers. Please help us make sure no one is turned away because of financial constraints.

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.

Today’s Jewish young people have the energy and enthusiasm to shape and change their world in innovative and exciting ways that simply weren’t possible in previous generations.

Since 1895 the JLGB has trained and developed tens of thousands of young people to reach their potential through active citizenship, within both the Jewish and wider community, empowering them to become future leaders.

Encouraging friendship through achievement, recognition and personal development programmes, such as the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award, the JLGB helps to prepare and enable young Jewish people to develop the essential life skills needed to help their transition from young person to adult life.

Young people represent the best possible investment in the future – help us to help them.

Since 1971, on a completely voluntary basis, the Committee has purchased medical equipment for many hospitals in Israel, including the Rambam Medical Centre in Haifa and the Western Galilee Hospital in Nahariya.  Wonderful hospitals offering the very best in medical care and expertise.

Commemorative plaques can be affixed to equipment and dedication ceremonies arranged.

Why not celebrate that special simcha by asking friends and family to dedicate their gifts for the purchase of life-saving medical equipment and also to help the disabled to regain their mobility, confidence in their lives and self esteem?

Bequests truly welcomed and all donations appreciated and acknowledged.

Imbued throughout with Jewish values, the Shaare Zedek Medical Centre in Jerusalem is renowned for its unparalleled levels of medical excellence, care and compassion for all - regardless of race, religion or financial circumstances. However, this world class hospital does not receive any government funding for equipment or development and so is dependent on donations and legacies for these essential elements.

As Jerusalem’s busiest hospital Shaare Zedek plays a vital role in maintaining the health and wellbeing of this special city. In turn, Shaare Zedek’s friends in the UK play a crucial role in enabling the hospital to maintain and develop its international reputation.

The Fund, established in honour of the late Dr I Sidney Gold, first President of the Redbridge Jewish Youth & Community Centre, promotes the Doris and Sidney Gold/RAGS Scholarships. The driving concerns of his life were young people, Israel and Jewish community service and appropriately these scholarships combine all three elements. 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. Extra funds will enable more worthy young people to be assisted.

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).

Youth Aliyah was born in 1933 to rescue children from the Nazis and bring them safely to Palestine. Today we aim to transform the lives of abandoned and deprived children from all over the world by giving them a new chance in life within a supportive, caring environment in Israel.

Some have been designated as ‘at-risk’ by the Israeli Child Care Authorities due to poverty, neglect or abuse. Others include both orphans and those whose parents are unable to provide their children with the skills to live successful and fulfilling lives within Israeli society. Highly acclaimed educational and therapeutic programmes raise the children from despair of poverty and abuse to become outstanding individuals in their own right and a true asset to Israel.

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.
