Who We Are

We are the Jewish community’s humanitarian agency. Since 1933 we have delivered life-saving and life-changing action to support and empower people in crisis.

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, His Majesty The King became World Jewish Relief’s Royal Patron and we are delighted that this was reconfirmed in 2024. His Majesty’s unwavering commitment and active support is a great source of motivation and inspiration to our team, trustees and global partners.
