Legacy Donations

Please help us make sure we can always be there for the people who need us.

Every year we need to raise £250,000 to continue our work and maintain the great services we offer.  Leave a lasting jewish legacy and ensure that some of your estate is Gifted to BJCC in your Will.

We will put your gift to very good use.

As we all live longer the need for BJCC will only grow.  So please help the Jewish Community in years to come with a Gift in your Will.

If you would like to find out more, in complete confidence, about including a gift in your Will, please contact Kirsty at

Fundraising Activities

BJCC run a number of fundraising events throughout the year.  From getting involved to watching a great show, we aim to make fundraising an enjoyable way of bringing the Birmingham Jewish Community together.  Have a look at some of our past events.

Remembrance Sunday 11th November

Remembrance has a very special meaning at Andrew Cohen House.  At 11 o'clock Rabbi Arkush had a short but moving memorial service for the residents and staff.  In the afternoon we had a nostalgic World War II themed "we'll meet again" tea.  The lively musical entertainment was provided by Lilian Wenble, Naomi Rowe and David Rowe and Keith Rowe.  The entertainments was followed by one of the BJCC's famous luscious cream teas clearly prepared with no reference to wartime rationing.  Together with a raffle the whole event raised nearly £900 of much needed funds for BJCC. Everyone really did 'pack up their troubles' and left the event with a 'smile smile smile'

Winter Tea Party

Each year in September we gather together for an afternoon of fun to raise money for BJCC.  This is run by some of our wonderful volunteers including Nikki Leigh and our Activities Team here at Andrew Cohen House.
Residents, friends, relatives and staff all purchase raffle tickets on the day to win prizes.  Our events are always well catered for by our kitchen who serve some delicious cakes on the day.
