There is an active charity committee called Yad beYad (hand-in hand) that meets up once a fortnight to discuss charity endeavours and arrange charity fundraisers within the school.
If you would like to get involved with charity initiatives, please apply to be part of our committee in the beginning of the year, and either email firstname.lastname@example.org or stop by Y116 to speak to the JiEP team!
Every year we support a combination of Jewish, non-Jewish, and Israeli charities. This year Yad beYad will support three charities that will help to heal the world in different ways in the midst of the ongoing pandemic.
1) Northwick Park Hospital https://www.lnwh.nhs.uk/northwick-park-hospital/
Northwick Park Hospital is the closest hospital to JFS. They provide a range of services, including caring for those with COVID -19.
2) Jewish Care https://www.jewishcare.org/
Jewish Care is the largest health and social care organisation serving the Jewish community in London and the South East. They run over 70 centres and services, touching the lives of 10,000 people every week.
3) JNF Yeruham Employment Centre
This project is a bespoke factory which provides productive employment for senior and disabled workers who would otherwise struggle to hold down a job, giving them not only the opportunity to earn a salary but also gain the dignity and independence that work provides.
Additional charity projects we have run during the 2020-2021 school year are listed below:
