Last week, the Chief Rabbi and Valerie visited World Jewish Relief’s work in Yorkshire, meeting refugees to discuss the challenges of integration and their aspirations, as part of #RefugeeWeek.

The Chief Rabbi commented: “It is humbling to listen to the remarkable positivity of people who have endured such enormous upheaval, and yet refuse to allow this to define their future. I am tremendously proud of the generosity of our community, which is helping the refugees to meet their needs so impressively. The response of World Jewish Relief to the refugee crisis, a major challenge of our time, has been exemplary.”
