Britain’s Prince William will address a special fundraising dinner next month organized by a Jewish health care organization in London, the UK’s Jewish Chronicle reported on Thursday.

The event will mark his first personal appearance at a community fundraiser.

The dinner on June 11 will celebrate the 25th anniversary of Jewish Care, a charity serving the Jewish community in London and the South East of England. The organization cares for the elderly and those with mental health disabilities. A record 1,400 people are expected to attend the event held at Alexandra Palace in north London, according to the report.

Kensington Palace said that the Duke of Cambridge will meet staff, volunteers and supporters who work for the charity, as well as its clients during the event, British Hello! magazine reported.

Jewish Care provides services for those who have physical, mental health or sensory disabilities, or forms of dementia, such as Parkinson’s or Alzheimer’s. The charity also runs a youth leadership program and the Holocaust Survivors’ Centre (HSC), which offers social, cultural and therapeutic events six days a week. HSC is the only center designed specifically for Holocaust survivors in the UK, the organization says on its website.

In a recent message marking the 70th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz, Prince William spoke of the need to keep the memory of the Holocaust alive, and to “learn from the past and create a safer future.”

He said, “We remember all those who suffered so terribly in the monstrous evil of the Holocaust. We must never forget the indescribable suffering, the millions of lives shattered and the human impact behind the statistics.”

  • The queen has never visited Israel, her husband has because his mother was amongst the righteous who helped Jews during the holocaust. I think his mother is even buried in Israel



  • Finally, someone in the British royalty with a good heart towards the Jewish people of England. G-d bless his royal highness and his wife and children.

      Yes, it is very important that Britain changes the pro muslim policy

  • I am very happy for the help which will be afforded to the organization “Jewish Care”.

    As now an Israeli citizen who originated in Great Britain
    I am proud too of the initiatives of Prince William, and appreciate the solidarity and modernization of the British Royal Family, with a special word for the excellent example afforded by Queen Elizabeth II.

  • Who was anti Semitic in Poland? Not the Nobility …but the Small Bourgeois and the Peasants….
    Who was also anti-Jews in GB? Workers peasant small bourgeois, (Mosleyans!) meanwhile the Lords named Jews into their Ranks…
    Meanwhile Jews believed in Left and Communism…the same stupid workers and small bourgeois among them, eager to gain the POWER…played an other game…..!!!!
    Prince William take the sword -word for the Jews meanwhile these f…… East Jews Millibands lead the anti -“zionist” Left …
    Crazy Jews!

      I could care less about your hatred of Jews, but your historical ignorance seems to limit your views. The Polish leadership,government, entrepreneurial types,university systems down to the local educational programs, as well as publications and news organizations and professional organizations in early WW2 were damn well anti-Semitic, and did little to prevent the “final solution.” Jew-hatred did not end with the arrival of Soviet communism to Poland. While the Russians did not support the Nazi Holocaust,Judaism was considered communism’s competitor. Many Jews died at the end of the Russian rope.
