Too many people won't speak to friends or family over Rosh Hashanah.

FRANK LOST HIS BELOVED WIFE ANNETTE FOUR YEARS AGO. HE'D NEVER FELT SO ALONE...

...BUT THANKS TO JEWISH CARE, HE'S NEVER LONELY

Every weekday, Frank enjoys a hot three-course Kosher meal thanks to Gerry from our Meals on Wheels service. Served with an extra helping of chinwag.

Like many of his generation, Frank never learned to cook when he was young, so he thoroughly enjoys the delicious food he receives from our Meals on Wheels service. It’s the only hot meal he eats all day. Frank loves talking with the volunteer who delivers it too: “They’ve always got time for a chat.”

...AND NOW HE'S MAKING FRIENDS AT THE AGE OF 89

Frank really looks forward to seeing his friends at our Redbridge Jewish Community Centre every week.

After Frank lost his beloved wife Annette, he thought he’d never see a friend, let alone make a new one. He felt trapped in his flat, alone and lonely, day after day. Then he heard about our community centre. Frank loves to chat with his new friends, sing and play carpet bowls. “I’ve got a new lease of life,” he explains.

LIVING ALONE SHOULD NEVER MEAN BEING LONELY.

All too many members of our community are living in isolation. Already, 90% of the people who depend on our community centres live alone – just like Frank. As the Jewish population ages, and families move further away from each other, that number is only going to increase.

But that doesn’t mean people who live on their own should live a life of loneliness. So please make a donation today and help make sure that alone doesn’t mean being lonely this Rosh Hashanah and beyond.
