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.

Pesach Appeal Charities 2019

Thank you to all members who nominated such great charities for this year’s Pesach Appeal.

The 3 causes the Charities Committee have selected for Pesach are:

Mavar - offers a rare and valuable safe space for people who have grown up within the Charedi community and are exploring options to work, study or live in the modern world, providing them with essential information, guidance, referrals and resources.

Resource - the Jewish Community’s free and confidential outplacement service providing unemployed people with advice and support to help them back into the workplace.

Guy’s Trust - honours the memory of Guy Joseph, whose family are longstanding shul members. It supports projects that reflect Guy’s interests, creating educational opportunities for disadvantaged young people in developing countries.

Fuller details will be provided with the Pesach mailing, which members will receive by post.

"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
