The Central Council for Jewish Refugees, originally the Council for German Jewry, was a British Jewish organization established in 1936 with the goal of aiding German Jews aged 17-35 to leave Germany. Plans were formulated in consultation with German Jewish leaders, and preparation would involve funding vocational training programs for the prospective emigrés. The Council helped nearly 100,000 Jews emigrate by the outbreak of World War II.
