Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

Ten years after we reestablished a Jewish community in York – once an important medieval Jewish centre and site of a notorious massacre of its Jewish population – we have just appointed the first resident rabbi since the expulsion of the Jews from England in 1290.

Now we want to make this part-time post full-time. We have already raised £75k ourselves but we now need to double that (£25k per year for the next three years) to make the most of the appointment.

This is a unique story. York has a special place in Jewish history and the revival of Judaism in the City is a vivid rebuttal of those that would destroy us. So please support us if you can. All donations however big or small hugely appreciated.

YLJC is bringing Judaism back to this world famous city, site of a medieval massacre still mentioned on Yom Kippur. The community is growing rapidly to support local Jews, students and visitors, and prove Jews can live anywhere. It is seeking funding for the City's first resident rabbi since 1290.
