AJR Management

The Association of Jewish Refugees (AJR) is a company limited by guarantee (8220991) and a charity registered with the Charity Commission for England and Wales (1149882).

The policies, priorities and programmes of the AJR are decided by a Board of Directors (known informally as Trustees), who are responsible for the charitable company's overall financial policy, the disbursement of financial support, and for managing funds to benefit the membership.

The serving Trustees are: Andrew Kaufman (Chairman), Eleanor Angel, Gaby Glassman, Frank Harding, Joanna Millan, Sir Erich Reich, David Rothenberg, Anthony Spiro and Philippa Strauss.

The AJR relies heavily on voluntary donations and legacies to help meet our commitments and to enable us to continue to provide our outstanding services. The kindness, foresight and generosity of our members is particularly welcome and we urge them to consider remembering the AJR in their wills. Every gift in every will makes a difference, however large or small, helping us to provide a vital financial safety net for our members with the greatest needs and enabling us to continue to do our outstanding work.

The AJR is managed on a day-to-day basis by Chief Executive, Michael Newman and Executive Director, David Kaye together with senior managers, who implement the policies as set by the Trustees.
