Message from our President

Dear Friends,

Over the past year, the Menora Foundation (incorporating Jewish Care WA) has continued to provide both social support and financial assistance to those in our community who are experiencing hardship. We have seen a significant rise in financial aid required to cover basic needs such as rent, food, utility bills and medical expenses.

Households are facing spiralling costs due to COVID and the war in the Ukraine, with prices increasing for a wide range of goods and services. The rental crisis in Perth, coupled with the substantial rise in the cost of living has exerted considerable financial pressure on those who are facing times of struggle. We will also be supporting Ukrainian Jewish families and individuals who are fleeing the current conflict and coming to settle in Perth.

The increased number of community members requiring assistance with multiple and significant challenges has required an expansion in the number of Menora Foundation staff members. Over the past year the board has employed a General Manager and a Community Mental Health Worker to help our social health team to manage the recipient requirements. This has also been done to make the Menora Foundation sustainable for future generations. In addition, we have relied on the continued governance of our honorary board members.

We are also very fortunate to have so many compassionate donors and dedicated volunteers to enable us to do our meaningful work. We gratefully acknowledge your past support and once again ask you to please give
generously to our annual tax-deductible appeal.

Please refer to the donation form below.

Thank you for assisting us to extend the hand of kindness and provide care and support to our fellow community members who are experiencing challenging times.

Warmest regards,

Melanie Greenfeld
President, Menora Foundation (Incorporating Jewish Care WA)
