They de­serve your help

UNI­VER­SITY JEWISH Chap­laincy, Chai Can­cer Care and Jewish Women’s Aid are the ben­e­fi­cia­ries of this year’s JC Char­ity Ap­peal.

The char­i­ties were cho­sen by a panel in­clud­ing Es­ther Rantzen, Mau­reen Lip­man and Baroness Neu­berger from reader nom­i­na­tions. We are now ask­ing read­ers to sup­port th­ese char­i­ties, each of which per­forms an es­sen­tial ser­vice within the com­mu­nity.

Jewish Women’s Aid of­fers a life­line for women and their chil­dren who have suf­fered abuse, op­er­at­ing a refuge and a freep­hone helpline. Uni­ver­sity Jewish Chap­laincy, a pres­ence on cam­pus for 40 years, faces “a real chal­lenge” to main­tain its net­work of nine chap­laincy cen­tres.

Chai Can­cer Care helps Jewish can­cer suf­fer­ers and their fam­i­lies, re­gard­less of syn­a­gogue af­fil­i­a­tion. The North Lon­don-based can­cer­sup­port or­gan­i­sa­tion re­ports that over the past year “new client num­bers have dou­bled and we ex­pect them to con­tinue ris­ing year-on-year”.
