JWA Annual Lunch 2016

24 May 2016

The JWA Annual Luncheon 2016 was held at the Montcalm Hotel. It was a wonderful event, as always, and did a lot to raise awareness about domestic violence and abuse in the Jewish community. Around 250 charitable women attended, and raised a substantial amount of money which goes directly to our core services.

Our guest speaker was Luciana Berger MP, who spoke passionately about women’s rights, her career in politics and her work as an MP. She also shared her views about dealing with anti-Semitism. It was really important to hear that she is an avid supporter of JWA – and has been ever since our education sessions at JFS when she was a pupil there. Good to know the impact that our education work can have!

We were also delighted to welcome actor Alison Steadman as our guest at this year’s Luncheon. It was such a pleasure to have her there. She read the fundraising Appeal beautifully, which was a letter written by a client sharing what JWA had done for her and her children. Alison also spoke from the heart about her support of this important work for Jewish women and children affected by DV.
