Kol Nidre Appeal 2018

Yom Kippur is unique. It gives us a truly special opportunity to reflect on our relationship with G-d, ourselves and other people. It's a day that changes lives.


Today the whole community comes together at this special time and as individual we consider our actions over the past year. We pray, ask for forgiveness and give Tzedaka (charity) to help others, and in doing so the power we have is simply enormous.


This is the power of the Kol Nidre Appeal. By giving together today we can change the lives of people both at home and in Israel.


The chosen charities for Woodside Park Synagogue's this year are:



The Jewish Digest

Jewish Digest is a unique UK based charity run by volunteers for people suffering with Crohn’s Disease and Ulcerative Colitis.

IBD is more commonly found amongst the Ashkenazi Jewish population but it is easy to feel isolated, as people don’t feel comfortable talking about their bowel issues over Friday night dinner, and many sufferers find there’s never really an appropriate time to talk about it. Because people with IBD find it hard to discuss, their family and friends often do not know much about it or understand what it means to live with a chronic condition.

There are lots of aspects to IBD and we hope to develop the charity in many ways. We’d love to hear your thoughts – we are here to help the community in whichever way possible.

British Friends of Zaka

ZAKA is Israel’s premier rescue and recovery volunteer organization, with thousands of volunteers  on call 24/7 to respond to any terror attack, accident or disaster. ZAKA volunteers also work in specialist search and rescue units on land and sea and the UN-recognized ZAKA International Rescue Unit operates at mass casualty incidents around the world.

The ZAKA volunteers are professionally trained in all aspects of their work related to identification of the deceased, preserving the honor of the dead and ensuring a full and proper Jewish burial. ZAKA is the only organization authorized by the Israel Police to handle any and every incident of sudden and unnatural death, be it traffic accidents, murder, suicide, terror attacks, mass casualty incidents or natural disasters.
