Yom Kippur Tsedakah Appeal 2021 / 5782

This year we’re raising money for Hear Me Out. In addition we of course ask you to make a donation to our Kehillah to help sustain and grow our community throughout the year.


Hear Me Out takes music-making into UK immigration detention centres to release the words, music & life stories of people held inside. Based in Islington, they help people inside immigration detention centres to express their humanity through music – to air their losses & fears, their hopes and their dreams. They also help those outside to hear the music and understand the lives of people trapped inside. They work for a day when all migrants are treated with dignity. More info: https://hearmeoutmusic.org.uk/


We pride ourselves in being a home for many Jewish people and families who have sometimes found it difficult to find a home elsewhere. But we also seek to make Kehillah a warm, welcoming, creative and good place. Every year we struggle to raise the money we need to do this particularly in this year, when we as a community have experienced such change, well as in a year of wider financial difficulties in our communities. We ask you to consider us on Yom Kippur because you value what we do and want us to continue to grow, to pray, to think, to learn, to challenge and to offer friendship and comfort.
