Message from our President

Dear Community Members,

The Jewish Community Council of WA Crisis Management Committee- Covid-19 Response has entrusted the Menora Charity Fund (MCF) with aiding the vulnerable and providing assistance during this unprecedented pandemic. In light of this we are holding our 2020 appeal now, rather than in May.

There are many in our community who are facing job losses and the financial impact of the coronavirus continues to escalate. Whilst the government has announced welcome relief, there will still be a multitude of individuals and families who require further assistance.

Current and new recipients will be subject to increased financial, medical and emotional pressures and we anticipate an enlarged portfolio of social support, which we will be called on to provide.

The MCF, through your generous donations and the tireless efforts of our incredible volunteers, had already seen a large increase in the support provided over the past few years. The need to close down our warehouse last month to protect our volunteers has curtailed all of our fundraising activities.

We gratefully acknowledge your past support and seek your renewed commitment to assist those living in our midst who are in serious need of our help. We urge you to please give generously to our tax deductible appeal during this developing crisis. Never before has your community so desperately needed your assistance.

We hope that you and your families stay safe and well over this difficult period.

Warmest regards,
Melanie Greenfeld
