Who are MPHJC

Last updated: 2005-06-17

Who are the Members of the MPHJC?

The MAKEPOVERTYHISTORY Jewish Coalition is an exciting, extraordinary venture for the UK Jewish community.  The coalition has forged a unified group of many varied sectors of the UK Jewish community including the larger synagogue movements, youth and student groups and civil society organisations in the Jewish community across the UK. This sort of cooperation is not unprecedented, however it is amazingly rare. As the focus of the campaign is outward looking, it has enabled many organisations to overlook the theoretical difficulties involved with cooperation and coordination.

 Members of the MPHJC support the Make Poverty History campaign individually as well as part of the Jewish Coalition. Membership has been expanding steadily since the campaign launched in March, 2005 and as of June, 2005 includes 17 organizations:
