In 2018, the Kol Nidrei appeal is supporting two charities, as well as fundraising for other initiatives that will benefit our shul community.

Raphael, is a counselling organisation specifically set up to serve the Jewish community across a range of emotional difficulties, including depression, bereavement, and the long term effects of the Holocaust. No one is turned away if they can’t afford the full cost of the sessions.

Jewish Child’s Day ‘Lights of Hope’ Project supports Israeli children and their families who are battling cancer. They are fundraising for a hospice room at Tel Aviv’s Yechilov Hospital where children can be cared for during the last days of their life alongside family and friends.

There will be appeals in all locations on both Kol Nidre and before Yizkor on Yom Kippur day.
