Our goal is to promote an understanding of the Jewish experience and to combat intolerance towards Jewish and other minority communities. In particular, it is likely to represent a diverse community of people with different beliefs, social class, economic status, and age groups. As the number of fires has more than halved over the past decade, the role of 21st century firefighters has shifted to focus on community safety and harm prevention, as well as home safety visits that go beyond fire risk to address social assistance issues such as preventing falls or drinking alcohol. When someone turns to Jewish Care for support, they expect other Jews to take care of them, so it was surprising to discover that 95% of the 1,500 employees of the charity are not Jewish.
However, it goes beyond the Jewish community to work with people of all faiths or none, through the Out & About Club and the LJS Drop-in for Asylum Seeker Families. Many older Jews return to their faith in the last years of their lives, even if until then they have not lived in accordance with Jewish law. David met Jewish Care about 30 years ago when he went to his great-uncle's 100th birthday party at the charity's Rubens House Finchley nursing home. Hannah and David (not their real names) have always been very involved in their North London Jewish community; Hannah was a yoga teacher and David was involved in the community work of his synagogue. When advocating on behalf of a person to local authorities why they should put them in a Jewish nursing home, it is about making them understand the importance of belonging and the history they share. These exhibitions explore Jewish identity in a multicultural society, as well as the migration and settlement experiences shared by many ethnic minority communities.
JW3: Help create a vibrant, diverse and proud community inspired by and committed to Jewish art, culture and community. Black and white photographs of the streets and of the Jews of London's East End in the early 20th century hang on the walls of the corridors. In his role as a councilmember, he not only has a legal obligation to comply with the law, but also to encourage and encourage the development of inclusive communities. Saturday is a very important element of the Jewish faith and this is reflected in Jewish Care, as it is a day of rest; offices are not open on Saturdays and nursing home managers are asked not to send emails. Members from other social classes can support and engage with the Jewish community in London by attending events such as exhibitions or lectures that explore Jewish identity in a multicultural society. They can also volunteer at JW3 or other organizations that promote an understanding of the Jewish experience.
Additionally, they can donate money or resources to help those in need within the community. Finally, they can join local councils or committees that work towards creating an inclusive environment for all.
