Religious Zionist group Mizrachi UK raises £750,000

CEO Rabbi Andrew Shaw said the fundraising effort 'reaffirmed our standing in the communities that we support'

More than three quarters of a millions pounds has been  raised by religious Zionist organisation Mizrachi UK.

The pro-Israel organisation held an online fundraiser which included nearly 2,300 donors from across the world, including £55,000 generated from volunteers in its school mentoring scheme, Yehudi.

The funds will go towards religious Zionist education in the UK, supporting leaders and shaping the organisation’s future.

Mizrachi UK CEO Rabbi Andrew Shaw said: “The support for Mizrachi UK from across the community has been inspiring. This has reaffirmed our standing in the communities that we support. The money raised from this campaign will go a long way to ensuring we can continue to provide Leadership Programming, Community Engagement Programmes and further the Yehudi Initiative.

As the campaign came to a close, its UK’s Chairman, Steven Blumgart said, “It was important for us that our campaign not only raised money but also the profile of Mizrachi UK. We are working with schools, campuses and communities and we hope the success of this campaign will serve to inspire our dedicated team to do even more across the UK.
