Harold House, Liverpool's Jewish community centre, faces temporary closure unless it can raise £100,000.
The centre is due to move into the new King David schools complex under construction on a neighbouring site and IS scheduled to open in September 2011.
But Harold House chief executive Stephen Simpson warned that the centre cannot continue until then without a cash influx.

The last Liverpool-based kosher caterer has relinquished its kashrut licence.
Marcos Catering, established in 1990, will henceforth cater small events on an unlicensed basis. Director Phil Marco said the expansion of a non-kosher noodle bar with his two sons did not sit with a kosher enterprise.
“I don’t think there will be anyone taking over kosher catering in Liverpool — the community isn’t big enough. Our biggest business has been in Manchester.”
