JewishOnline by JW3

JW3 have launched a free resource for the entire Jewish community bringing together the widest range of online Jewish content, programming and activity in one place for everyone to access. It is a free one-stop-shop to access Jewish events, talks, synagogue services, cultural activities, arts performances, Jewish films, family programming and much more – from across the entire British Jewish community.

The JLC’s initial Covid-19 response

During the first period of the pandemic the JLC delivered projects that raised and distributed £2m to 235 families facing financial hardship and 28 organisations providing care for 15,000 vulnerable people.


Reshet has brought together a number of resources which we hope will give families ideas on how to keep busy at home – Busy b’Bayit.
Sharing resources for a range of ages groups, giving children and young people opportunities to learn and get creative.

About the jlc community portal

As each of us adapts to the coronavirus pandemic and measures to contain it, people and local groups have inspired with acts of kindness providing food, care and comfort. Our communal leadership and vital charities have been working well and working together to assist the community through this crisis.
The JLC connects and coordinates the Jewish charitable sector, strengthens and supports leadership across our community, and magnifies and amplifies the collective voice of our member organisations. Now is the time for cooperation and collective responsibility.
Working alongside the Board of Deputies at the beginning of the pandemic, the JLC regularly brought together CEOs from over 60 organisations. Our teams have been working with many more parts of the community every day during this crisis.
This portal is a development of that work, collating advice, resources and access to communal life online, in one place, for everyone across the Jewish community.
