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.

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.

One in five people in the UK faces a diagnosis of disability and someone goes blind every hour, and Jewish Blind & Disabled is the only charity in the Jewish community dedicated to enabling people in this position, from the age of eighteen upwards, to live independently with the dignity and choice that are so easy for others to take for granted. This is not only through their specially designed developments of state-of-the-art mobility apartments with 24/7 support from their own resident house managers, but also through their new Independent Living Advisory Service for those living out in the wider community.
As an independent charity that does not receive any government funding, Jewish Blind & Disabled is very grateful for your support.

Most of us will eventually face the trauma of hearing loss – or already have a loved one who is.
With your help, we can:

For over 65 years JDA has been a specialist community lifeline, enabling people living with deafness to cope with whatever challenges life brings. We receive no statutory funding and depend on legacies and donations to sustain our wide range of services for the Jewish community and beyond.

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.

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.

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).

Yakar Educational Foundation
34 Arcadia Avenue
In Israel today, there are over 400,000 children who do not have a family that can care for them adequately and who are deemed ‘at risk’. Youth Aliyah Child Rescue is stepping up for vulnerable young people by providing a ladder of opportunity that enables them to climb from a life of poverty, neglect and violence, up towards a bright, successful future as contributing members of society.
Through our five youth villages and pioneering educational methodology, the ‘Village Way’, we enable thousands of at risk children – including immigrants and children of immigrants from Ethiopia, the former Soviet Union and elsewhere in the world – to live in safety, heal from their traumatic pasts and make the climb from survival to leadership.
