CJC Covid-19 India Appeal

In India, the pandemic still rages and obtaining oxygen, let alone hospital treatment, is not easy. On Lag Ba’omer, we sent out an urgent request to our communities across the commonwealth asking them to play their part in aiding the coronavirus crisis currently playing out in India.

In less than two weeks, we have simply been blown away by the generosity of response. The incredible communities in Australia, Barbados, Canada, Eswatini, Gibraltar, Mauritius, Jersey, Malta, Mauritius, Mozambique, South Africa, Uganda, and the U.K. have already stepped up and we feel so thankful to be part of this wonderful network.

The Commonwealth Jewish Council has just sent oxygen concentrators to communities across the country, thanks to many of our smaller communities around the world coming together and donating.

Here the Jews of Ahmedabad, the only Jewish community in Gujarat, receive this life saving machine.

CJC celebrates World Environment Day

This Shabbat is #worldenvironmentday and here at the CJC we’ve spent the week looking at our role in the environmental challenges we all face.

It’s been a busy week, these are just a few of the things we’ve been up to: Started our climate network with representatives from both small and large communities; including Canada, Zimbabwe, Gibraltar, UK, Jamaica and so many others!

We’ve had our first climate champions meeting with representatives from across the commonwealth. We listened to eachother’s challenges and started to think about some global campaigns. Watch. This. Space. Our women’s climate group has started with some amazing projects already being worked on.

Thinking about our involvement with #cop26 and meeting with the amazing #makecopcount group, to work on faith involvement at this crucial event. Check out our climate change manifesto here – have a look and let us know how you’d like to be involved!
