JNF UK’s sell-out comedy evening raises funds for abused girls in Israel

A sold out audience packed out the Gatehouse Theatre in Highgate for JNF UK’s sixth annual “Kosher Komedy” event, on 29th October 2017. 145 people filled the intimate venue and were entertained by a line-up of great comedians who brought the house down with their own brand of Jewish humour.

Host Mark Maier along with stand-up comedians Bennett Arron, Addy Van Der Borgh and Sol Bernstein kept the audience rolling with laughter, helping JNF UK to raise essential funds for the Eden Therapeutic home for Israeli girls who have suffered abuse.

Tracy Lee, event chair said, “Kosher Komedy is always a fun evening, and this year was no exception. I have had the privilege of seeing many of the incredible projects JNF UK are involved with in the Negev area of Israel and it is very rewarding to organise an event to raise funds to contribute to Eden Karmia.”

Yonatan Galon, CEO of JNF UK, said: “JNF UK is all about putting smiles on faces, and the audience tonight won’t be the only ones smiling, because their support will also help the girls at Eden Karmia to smile again. These girls have suffered terrible abuse, but the therapeutic home for which we are raising money makes sure that they receive all the love and support they need to help put a smile back on their faces, equipping them with the confidence they need to face the wider world.”
