Based in the East End of London, the centre is for older Jewish people living in east London and the City. It has been at the heart of East London's Jewish community for many years.


We were heartbroken when we were forced to close the doors of our 12 community centres in March due to the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic, but we are absolutely still open and providing a number of key services to meet the needs of our community. 

Jewish Care is providing Meals on Wheels to 3 times more people than before the Covid-19 pandemic. Our befriending volunteers are calling over 1000 people a week. Our lively virtual programme of talks, digital entertainment and online activities is growing every week.
