The Jewish Chronicle - - People -

TH­ESE TWO women are do­ing their bit to help vul­ner­a­ble chil­dren in Is­rael. Deborah Nathan (right) has be­come the new di­rec­tor of Emu­nah — the char­ity which cares for youngsters in Is­rael whose lives are in dan­ger — while Camille Comp­ton has been elected as the or­gan­i­sa­tion’s new chair.

One of their main aims is to get the or­gan­i­sa­tion to ap­peal to a younger crowd. Ms Nathan, the for­mer fi­nan­cial di­rec­tor at Chai Can­cer Care, tells

Peo­ple: “It is time to find a new di­rec­tion in or­der to con­tinue the work we do in Is­rael.

“We have been go­ing for 75 years and need to stay rel­e­vant to peo­ple — or they will give to other or­gan­i­sa­tions.” For­mer vice chair Mrs Comp­ton, 44, says: “It is a tough time for char­i­ties. There are so many, all wor­thy. We are try­ing to ap­peal to the wider com­mu­nity and im­prove our schools and youth pro­gramme.” Mrs Comp­ton will serve a two-year term be­fore con­tin­u­ing her vol­un­tary in­volve­ment with the char­ity on the ex­ec­u­tive com­mit­tee.
