By Sandy Rashty, January 17, 2014

JNF UK is calling on British Jews to support its children's appeal.

The charity’s Green Sunday Appeal, which launches this weekend, is raising funds for an early childhood centre in the Negev – providing care for children up to the age of six.

The centre, which will cost more than £2 miillion, will make toys, classroom furniture and playground equipment available to service users.

Samuel Hayek, Chairman of JNF UK, said: “JNF UK is committed to improving the quality of life for all people in the Negev, specifically children in need. This is the time for the community to pull together for a highly worthy cause and I urge everyone to show their support.”
