We Also Need…

The editors of the Jewish Charity Guide are often approached for details of charities or organisations that accept ‘good as new’ clothing, furniture, bric-à-brac and other goods for sale through charity shops or to be distributed to the needy. Jewish museums and art galleries are also delighted to receive donations (or bequests) of Jewish art, memorabilia, artefacts, books and photographs.

Below, we list some of the organisations that are happy to accept such items. Due to space restrictions, it is difficult to be specific about the items required and we suggest that donors contact the charities direct before sending goods. In some cases, collection can be arranged.

We are keen to hear from any other organisations that would like to be listed in this section of next year’s Guide.
