Rosh Hashanah represents a time to help make the year ahead a little sweeter for those in our community who are in serious need.
“On Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur, in one of the most famous of our prayers, the Unetaneh Tokef, we think about what we can do to improve ourselves, better our relationship to G-d and the culminating act of growth which is to give to others,” says Rabbi Ralph Genende OAM, General Manager Jewish Life.
For an incredible 175 years, Jewish Care Victoria has responded to the needs and given to the most vulnerable in our community.
The longevity of our organisation can be attributed to the funding received from you, our valued supporters and donors.
However, 175 years on, the need for support in our community is still as strong as ever.
Many individuals and families are finding themselves in situations they could never have foreseen and Jewish Care has been the only place they could turn to.
In fact, in just the last 12 months, we received over 13,000 calls for assistance and provided 222 families with financial aid to cover essential expenses.
Here’s what one of our clients had to say:
“It was the hardest call I had to make, but I’m so thankful I did. I was immediately greeted with a friendly voice and for the first time in a long time, I felt hopeful. My biggest regret is not contacting Jewish Care sooner”, said Sarah.
There has never been a more important time to help make this New Year sweeter for those in serious need.
