Tzedakah / Charities - Giving at NNLS

Tzedakah is a mainstay of Jewish life. The sages teach that the world was built upon kindness. However, tzedakah goes one step beyond. Literally translated as “justice” or “righteousness,” tzedakah tells us that sharing what we have with others isn't something special, it is the just thing to do.

NNLS supports a range of charities through our appeals at Pesach and Yom Kippur, and throughout the year.

Nominate a Charity for the next Tzedakah Appeal

The annual Kol Nidrei Appeal gives our community the opportunity to help, an opportunity to take action and make a difference to people and communities, here, in Israel, or around the world. NNLS members are invited to nominate charities to be considered as the beneficiaries of this year’s appeal

Last year’s Kol Nidrei Appeal raised an incredible £104,000 for Barnet Mencap, FoodCycle, World Jewish Relief, the Centre for Creativity in Education and Cultural Heritage and the NNLS Organisational Family, an average of c.£20,000 per charity.

If you would like to nominate a charity to be considered for this year’s Kol Nidrei Appeal, please click here to complete the nomination form. The charity can then apply here.

The deadline for both member nominations and charity applications is 10am Sunday 28th June. Nominations will be considered by the Tzedakah Committee and the chosen charities will be contacted. The appeal itself will open in early September.

The Charities we Supported for Pesach 5780 are:

This appeal is now closed.

"And when you reap the harvest in your land, you shall not reap the corners of your field; neither shall you gather the gleaning of your harvest. And you shall not glean your vineyard, nor shall you gather the single grapes of your vineyard. You shall leave them for the poor and the stranger." Vayikra 19:9-10
