This year, Sinai's high holy day appeal will be focused on just two charities, to help ensure that our donations can have maximum impact at a time of increased need. The first is the Leeds Jewish Welfare Board, and their Hope campaign. The second is Reform Judaism, and their Communities that Care initiative. Both causes have direct impact on both the Sinai and Leeds communities, and both are tackling, head on, the challenges of the Covid-19 pandemic as well as the seeking to ensure those whose needs are greatest are, as best as possible, met.

Sinai Synagogue Supporting Leeds Jewish Welfare Board (LJWB) and Reform Judaism’s Communities that Care Initiative

The support of Sinai Synagogue is needed now more than ever, as LJWB continues to provide vital support to the Community, in the face of the corona virus crisis.

LJWB delivers an extensive range of community support and registered care services helping to reduce social isolation, improve mental health and wellbeing challenges, poverty, and support with daily living; aiming to deliver our vision of positively changing lives.

Beneficiaries in our services, age from our youngest at just a few days old to families experiencing parenting issues, adults with learning disabilities and mental health issues to the more experienced members of our community facing illness, old age and living with long-term debilitating health conditions, social isolation and remoteness of family.

“The Communities that Care initiative’s work on mental health is restoring the idea of community as a sacred canopy under which we can find healing and support.”

Rabbi Naomi Goldman, Kol Chai - Hatch End Jewish Community

“Working in my community, combined with my personal experience, has allowed me to see first-hand how mental health conditions are becoming increasingly prevalent at all stages of life...

Mental health is a crucial component of our quality of life for everyone and working to safeguard it has to be a top priority for building a caring community”.
