World Jewish Relief is the British Jewish community’s international humanitarian agency and Reform Judaism is supporting this urgent appeal.

Rabbi Laura Janner-Klausner, Senior Rabbi to Reform Judaism said: “With Passover around the corner, marking the spring harvest, we are aware that ecosystems are so fragile. In East Africa, 16 million urgently need help. I know our community will draw on our duty as Jews to give tzedakah, particularly at this time of year and will give generously to ensure World Jewish Relief can help those who are in need”.
