Children are encouraged to donate a gift or buying one with birthday money. The Jewish House will share their support with the Sydney Children’s Hospital.

Already underway, the Birthday Club has received gifts for distribution from Jesse and Ryan Behrmann, Jesse Hirschowitz and Noah Feilich.

Club Co-ordinator Terry Solsky said: “I hope this will be something  MHUFC embraces and furthers the ideal of it being part of the community.”

Rabbi Mendel Kastel, the CEO of the Jewish House, added: “It was great to see young children embracing charity at a young age and thinking of others.”
