World Jewish Relief is delighted to announce the remarkable success of its “Shoulder to Shoulder” campaign, which has achieved its ambitious £500,000 target in just 36 hours. This urgent initiative, aimed at providing crucial support to those affected by crisis, conflict, and disaster worldwide, has received overwhelming support from the community.


Since 1933, World Jewish Relief has been inspired by Jewish values to support vulnerable individuals around the globe. From aiding over a quarter of a million people in Ukraine since the onset of war to establishing vital lifelines for Jewish communities in need, our programmes enable people to not only survive but thrive.


The incredible response from our supporters exemplifies the importance of our community, which has always been crucial to our work. For 91 years, their unwavering support has enabled us to deliver critical aid to those in need. Now, once again, their generosity empowers us to provide vital assistance to those facing crisis, conflict, and disaster.


Paul Anticoni, Chief Executive of World Jewish Relief, shared his gratitude: “We are profoundly grateful for the extraordinary response to our ‘Shoulder to Shoulder’ campaign. Reaching our target so swiftly underscores the compassion and solidarity of our community. This campaign was about more than fundraising; it was about empowering people to overcome adversity. Thank you to everyone who stood with us.”


World Jewish Relief extends sincere thanks to all who donated and promoted the campaign, making a significant difference in the lives of those in crisis. The funds will support our essential work across four continents.
