Rabbi Avraham Goldberg

Rabbi Avraham Shmuel Goldberg was one of the four Rabbis tragically murdered in the despicable massacre in the Kehillat Yaacov Synagogue in Har Nof Jerusalem. To commemorate the first Yahrzeit on 7 November 2015 (25 Cheshvan), his cousins and friends are aiming to raise funds for a life-saving three bedded unit in the Emergency Department of the Shaare Zedek Hospital as a meaningful memorial to him.

As the dying and critically wounded from the massacre were admitted to the Shaare Zedek, his family and friends felt it appropriate that a project should be established at the hospital in his name.

Rabbi Goldberg z”l was born and raised in Liverpool where his family were an integral part of the community. Rabbi Goldberg was educated at the Liverpool Institute before studying at Gateshead and then Sheffield University where he received a degree in Chemical engineering followed by a PhD from Liverpool University. Rabbi Goldberg pursued his career in the chemical industry where he was an authority on chemical powders and later in publishing Jewish Books

Following his marriage to Bryna (Sobell) he moved to Golders Green London.  Subsequently Rabbi Goldberg emigrated to Israel with his family, firstly to Ofakim and then to Har Nof, Jerusalem.

Rabbi Goldberg was a very well respected and popular member of the Har Nof community and is sorely missed by all who knew him.

He leaves a widow, six children, grandchildren and a great grandson who was born after his death.

We are delighted to have reached our initial fundraising target which was £67,000, but the family are continuing to raise funds in Rabbi Goldberg’s memory to maintain the life-saving equipment they have purchased.

Reclaim Gift Aid

Gift Aid It!Add 25% more to your donation at no cost to you. A Gift Aid declaration allows Shaare Zedek to claim tax back on eligible donations. It means that for every £1 you donate to Shaare Zedek we can claim back 25p, at no extra cost to you.

By ticking the "Yes" box, I confirm I am a UK taxpayer and agree I would like Shaare Zedek to reclaim the tax on all qualifying donations I have made, as well as any future donations, until I notify them otherwise. I understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in that tax year I may be asked to pay any difference. I understand that Shaare Zedek will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that I give.

What is Gift Aid?

Gift Aid does not cost you a penny more, but can add an additional 25p to every £1 you donate. When Shaare Zedek receives a donation from a UK taxpayer, we're entitled to claim an amount of tax (calculated at the basic rate of income tax in that year) paid on that donation. Once you have given your permission for us to do this on your behalf, there is no need for you to do anything else.

All that is required is that you must be a taxpayer and that would have paid or will pay sufficient Income and/or Capital Gains Tax to cover all the Gift Aid claimed on all your donations in that tax year. Please note that it is your responsibility to pay any difference.

The amount of tax we claim will be 25% of the total value of your donations in that tax year. Furthermore, if you are a higher taxpayer, you are also entitled to claim the difference between the basic rate which we will claim and the amount of tax you have actually paid. For further details on how you can do this, please contact your tax office. If your tax situation changes and your gifts will no longer be eligible for the Gift Aid scheme please contact us and we will amend your record accordingly.
