Very big news: We are thrilled to announce that JVS is crowdfunding to create the UK’s first Jewish vegetarian centre, due to open in London in the autumn of this year.

A philanthropist has generously offered to match fund every £1 we raise up to £25,000.

There are an array of special treats on offer to donors over on our crowdfunding page, where you can find out what we plan to use the money for. Please help us to reach our target by making a donation and sharing this post far and wide.
