JRoots is providing support to Ukranian refugees waiting to enter Poland in Lvov, Ukraine and when they arrive in Poland at the border and in Krakow, with housing, bedding, food, transport, portable electric power, and many other needs including helping facilitating Aliyah to Israel.
We are leveraging our extensive local organization in Poland which we built over many years of organising Jewish Heritage Trips in Poland and the region. We are able to convert donations into action and results on the ground very quickly, as we are very nimble, practical and flexible, and are providing the help needed by refugees now, before the very large NGO’s are able to marshal their resources and deploy personnel.
JRoots is a leading provider of tailor made heritage trips to Poland for young Jewish people. Thousands of young Jews have benefited from inspiring journeys over recent years often accompanied by Holocaust survivors under the directorship of Tzvi Sperber.
In 2011 a bespoke guidebook and student workshops were produced entitled a Jewish Trip to Poland – Past, Present and Future. In addition, we have launched the Vehigadeta Levincha – (And you should tell it to your children) a highly acclaimed film series alongside survivor interviews online archive. The latter have already been viewed by over 250,000 people.
In the closing window of opportunity that remains we are passionately committed to providing this inspiring opportunity to many more young people. Each JRoots journey is a testament to the past, present and future of Jewish life. Student trips entail a subsidy of up to £750 per person.
Whatever your level of support, it is greatly appreciated.
