90 Years of World Jewish Relief
For 90 years, World Jewish Relief has responded to the needs of marginalised communities. We were founded in 1933 to support Jews in Nazi-occupied Europe, have assisted Jewish communities in crisis across the world, and today support people in 23 countries within and beyond the community.
Our Royal Patron
Inspired by a visit to Krakow’s Jewish community in 2002, His Majesty approached World Jewish Relief and encouraged us to fund, build and establish the outstanding Jewish Community Centre in the city.
In 2015 the former Prince of Wales became World Jewish Relief’s Royal Patron. His Majesty’s unwavering commitment and active support is a great source of motivation and inspiration to our team, trustees and global partners.
