Jewish News is this weekend partnering with a non profit crisis rescue foundation to help Israeli refugees in London access medical and legal support.
Crisis Rescue Foundation (CRF), set up in 2020, provides vital services to those in need of healthcare and wellbeing help.
This Sunday 19th November, it is running an afternoon pop-up session for Israelis displaced to the UK due to the ongoing war with Hamas.
The event, between 2pm and 5pm, takes place at Jewish community hub JW3 in north London with both English and Hebrew speakers available.
Dr Sharon Raymond GP, Director, the non profit Crisis Rescue Foundation, (CRF) said: “I’m pleased to share that we have galvanised U.K. healthcare professionals, including doctors, nurses, dentists and psychologists, in reaching out to Israelis new to the U.K. with our CRF Vaxi Taxi/ Health and Wellbeing Pop Up event at JW3 this Sunday.
“We will be offering health and well-being information and signposting to trusted services and resources, as well as face painting, art sessions for kids, wrapped toys ready for Chanukah, pre-loved clothes, toys, and books, goodie bags of toiletries, refreshments, along with live music in a welcoming and informal environment. We are very grateful to the Jewish News for their invaluable support for this key community event.

Being a community platform means so much more than producing a newspaper and website. One of our proudest roles is media partnering with our invaluable charities to amplify the outstanding work they do to help us all.
There’s no shortage of oys in the world but Jewish News takes every opportunity to celebrate the joys too, through projects like Night of Heroes, 40 Under 40 and other compelling countdowns that make the community kvell with pride.
In the first collaboration between media outlets from different faiths, Jewish News worked with British Muslim TV and Church Times to produce a list of young activists leading the way on interfaith understanding.
Royal Mail issued a stamp honouring Holocaust hero Sir Nicholas Winton after a Jewish News campaign attracted more than 100,000 backers. Jewish Newsalso produces special editions of the paper highlighting pressing issues including mental health and Holocaust remembrance.

Voice of our community to wider society
The Jewish News team regularly appears on TV, radio and on the pages of the national press to comment on stories about the Jewish community. Easy access to the paper on the streets of London also means Jewish News provides an invaluable window into the community for the country at large.
