Through the decades, the charity has evolved; from a once-a-year collection to a year round fundraising necessity. But the charity’s philosophy has never wavered - to instil in Jewish youngsters a sense of responsibility for the care of Jewish children who are less fortunate than themselves and to actively involve them in raising the funds which can bring dreams to reality.
Jewish Child’s Day helps so many children in so many different ways in Israel, Eastern Europe and at home here in the UK. The charity supports children who are blind and deaf, those challenged by physical, learning or emotional difficulties, children who have been abused, neglected, deprived or disadvantaged, children who don’t have a safe and secure family or home, and those who are battling against severe illness or trauma. From its modest beginnings in 1947 until today, Jewish Child’s Day has helped over half a million Jewish children in need.
Today the charity allocates over £300,000 to around 120 different projects every single year.
