Arriving in time for Rosh Hashana, Melbourne’s Jewish Care’s tzedakah box mascot is a friendly face to raise awareness and teach kids the importance of giving.

Gandel Besen House outside Montefiore Homes Community Residence

Our mascot will be seen at schools, community events, festivals and Jewish Care functions handing out tzedakah boxes to children and members of our community to help support Jewish Care’s services.

However, our mascot does not have a name. So what better way to name him than by asking the kids?  Jewish Care has launched a competition to name the mascot.

Name our tzedakah box mascot and you could win one of five family passes to the Classic Cinema in Elsternwick.  Simply, email your entry, along with your own name, age and phone number, to by 5pm Friday 17 August.
Full details of the competition are available at

We know this friendly fellow will delight children and adults alike while delivering an important message – you’re never too young to make a difference to someone else’s life.

Our tzedakah box mascot is available for appearances at your next school or community event. To book, please call Jewish Care on (03) 8517 5963 or email
