HIAS+JCORE works to engage the Jewish Community in social action and social justice in the wider society, focusing on race equality and justice for refugees and asylum seekers. Our work draws on Jewish refugee experience, teaching and tradition of Jewish social activism.

The sudden fall of Kabul and its tragic consequences are particularly resonant for the Jewish community.
Those Afghans who manage to get on a plane and come to the UK will, thankfully, be out of danger. But they will arrive with little more than the clothes on their backs. So there will be a huge and urgent need for basic necessities – everything from outerwear and underwear to toothpaste and towels – followed by practical, social and psychological support.
JCORE has decades of experience of responding creatively and effectively to the arrivals of large groups of refugees, whether with basic necessities, counselling, English teaching, re-training for refugee doctors or befriending for young asylum seekers separated from their families. Our shared history inspires and informs this work. And it compels us to act.
Please donate today, so that we have funds in place to meet people’s urgent needs without delay.
We are also working closely with other charities in the field so as to make the best use of our collective skills and experience.
Thank you. We will keep you posted and let you know what your generosity has enabled us to do.
