United Communal Fund

We protect and nurture our Jewish community.

Our commitments to our beneficiaries have increased and as we continue forward we are proud of our achievements, which would not be possible if
not for our dedicated and loyal contributors.

We will continue to support our worthy beneficiaries and thereby help them to secure the future of our Jewish community in South Africa.

The UCF supports our local community through the following beneficiaries:

The South African Jewish Board of Deputies (SAJBD)

Dedicated and passionate, the SAJBD team works tirelessly to ensure that your civil rights as a Jewish South African are protected and secured. It does so through continual engagement with government, political parties, civil society, media and other faith groups, bringing to wider notice the needs and concerns of SA Jewry.

  • The voice and civil rights lobby of the SA Jewish community.
  • Fights to uphold Jewish civil liberties and combat anti-Semitism.
  • Monitors the media to ensure balanced reporting of issues relating to the community and confronts unbalanced and negative reporting when necessary.
