The Pyjama Foundation, an organisation that provides support for children in foster care has held a national pyjama day at Sydney’s Jewish House.

Rabbi Mendel Kastel and Jewish House staff

Staff were encouraged to come to work in their pyjamas showing support for the important work that the Pyjama Foundation does.

By recruiting and training “Pyjama Angels” who are carefully matched with a foster child whom they engage in learning-based activities during regular visits, encouraging life skills and confidence.

Jewish House is currently on a drive to recruit Foster Parents in the Jewish Community to ensure that any Jewish child who is unable to stay with their parents for any reason will still have the opportunity to experience the joys and advantages of growing up within the Jewish Community

Jewish House is holding an information evening aimed at educating and encouraging participants in our community who have an interest in this important mitzvah.  The evening will be held on

Tuesday, 25 July 2017 at 6.30pm at Jewish House.

17 Flood Street, Bondi, NSW, 2026.

 Each foster carer brings different skills, qualities and family circumstances. Anyone can apply to become a foster carer as long as they are over 21 years of age, an Australian citizen or permanent resident, and in good physical and emotional health without a medical condition that may affect their ability to care for a child or young person.  They come from all walks of life. They can be single, married, or in a same sex or de facto relationship; tenants or home owners; working or not working, or a parent already.
