  • The Chief Rabbi's Ben Azzai Programme

    The Chief Rabbi's Ben Azzai Programme is an annual initiative that takes high calibre university students on an immersive international trip to the developing world, to learn about the challenges of poverty, education and social mobility. They meet with individuals and organisations working in these areas, and do so within an orthodox framework, becoming ambassadors familiar with the place of social responsibility within Jewish identity. Central to the initiative is the follow up that takes place on return from the trip. Participants will share their experiences widely, within communities, in schools, on campus and beyond.
  • Tzedek

    Tzedek is the UK Jewish community’s international development charity. We believe that the British Jewish community has an obligation to those suffering the indignity of extreme poverty and that we can actively do something about it. Many of the problems directly affecting people living in extreme poverty are best understood by the people themselves. We have learned that listening, empowering and helping people to help themselves is the best approach to achieving sustainable change. All our work is guided by the expertise and insight of local partner organisations, complemented by the technical expertise of Tzedek and the engagement of volunteers. Because of us, the UK Jewish community hears and sees first-hand the creation of solutions and how those solutions are implemented. And, through sharing the stories of real, practical impact, we hope to inspire our community to continue to play its part.
