Charities by Category: Crisis Help / Medical Rescue
FJRO was created in 1919 and in the last ten years has developed numerous projects in Israel in cooperation with The Association for Children at Risk (therapeutic aid for autistic children), The Tel Aviv Foundation (projects for disadvantaged children and adults), and The Jaffa Institute (education for children from problematic backgrounds), and provided food and clothing for deprived families.
It has made donations towards a number of projects in England – particularly for Norwood – in addition to many other charities.
FJRO is also supported by the Christadelphian Community for the benefit of ‘The Children of Israel’.
Please consider us when making a donation or writing your Will, so that we can continue to offer these essential services to Jewish families in the UK and Israel.

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).
