On the eve on Yom Kippur, the annual UJIA Kol Nidre Appeal has been launched at the Ambassador of Israel's London residence which this year has seen Chief Rabbi Sir Jonathan Sacks endorse it.
The endorsement follows his recent visit to the Galil region in Israel where he visited projects funded by the UJIA.
Sir Jonathan told those attending about his time in Israel and the importance of the educational work UJIA does both in the UK as well as in Israel.
According to the UJIA, 120 synagogues across the UK will be taking part in the Kol Nidre appeal.
