Many JAA supporters opt to use their simcha (wedding, bar/bat mitzvah, anniversary or birthday) to raise money for our organisation by requesting friends and family donate to JAA in lieu of gifts.


You can create your own personal simcha page online here and invite your loved ones to donate to your page. Donors will receive tax deductible receipts immediately and you will receive a certificate for your contribution.


You can ask your guests to make out cheques to Jewish Aid Australia. Please keep a record of your guests addresses so that we can post them their tax deductible receipts.
