The Social Centre at the Jewish Community of Estonia offers a helping hand to the most vulnerable representatives of Estonian Jewish population – pensioners, disabled persons, single-parent families and children in need, so they can live with dignity in difficult conditions of the modern world. We also care about preserving Jewish values. People we look after feel surrounded by care, and it is very important for them that this support is coming from the Jewish Community, which for many of them is a large Jewish family.

Welfare Center of the Jewish Community of Estonia is active in 9 cities: Tallinn, Tartu, Narva, Sillamäe, Kohtla-Järve, Rakvere, Pärnu, Viljandi and Valga.
