The past 18 months have been one of the most challenging periods in living memory.
The pandemic turned all of our lives upside down every which way. We have lost people who are close to us. Some of us have been seriously ill. Many have come under huge financial pressure. And all of us feel anxious and isolated.
Rabbi Ari & Naomi Shishler and the Jewish Life Centre community responded quickly and effectively. To support people in distress and to hold our community together through this tempest.
By sending daily inspirational videos... by providing meals to those who were isolated... by providing guidance to people searching for answers...by raising funds to support those in need… by keeping our community connected... The Jewish Life Centre supported families, inspired individuals, and illuminated this dark chapter.
This is what we do. This is what we have always done. This is who we are. A beacon of meaning, connection and upliftment.
We held you through the worst of times. Imagine what we can achieve in better times.
Now, it is time to emerge and rebuild from this devastating pandemic.
Your donation ensures that the Jewish Life Centre will continue to be there for you... no matter the need, no matter the obstacle. Your gift demonstrates that you are a changemaker. You will help us lift up a fellow Jew during his or her greatest time of trial. Whether the need is emotional, psychological, physical, financial, or spiritual, we will be there… all thanks to your generosity.
Jewish Sandton needs us. But, a dynamic Jewish community doesn't happen on its own. It depends on the generous hearts of donors like you. It’s not something we talk about a lot, but creating this community is expensive. Philanthropy is the engine that makes JLC go!
Your gift ensures that - despite all the bad news - no one in our Sandton family is alone. Your donation ensures that we keep the doors open, that we can craft new programmes, engage better resources, and support more people.
In order to rebuild and emerge even stronger than before, we have committed to raise R4,000,000 in just 36 hours!
Today, you are investing in each and every Jew in the greater Sandton area.
Please open your heart and donate today. Now is the time to secure our future.
Stay Safe. Stay Sane. Stay Generous.
