Parents

It's a legitimate question to ask – why should you allow your children get involved with the JLGB?

If you're alumni, you'll know the answer to that question, but if you're coming to JLGB through a recommendation or you Googled 'the best Jewish youth organisation in the UK', we think you have a right to know why we think the JLGB is, in fact, 'the best Jewish youth organisation in the UK.'

As with everything in life, you have choices about where to go, what to do and what activities and social interactions will best benefit your post-Bar or Batmitzvah children as they grow and develop into young adults (too quickly for your liking...)

  • JLGB members grow up to be responsible, community-focused leaders. In the words of the former Chief Rabbi Dr Jonathan Sacks, 'The JLGB has developed many generations of young leaders who have learned, through their involvement with the JLGB, the qualities, skills and attributes of good leadership'
  • The JLGB provides your children with a completely safe environment. Every JLGB leader has a DRS (formerly CRB) police check, they are trained in first-aid and they have undergone a rigorous and comprehensive training programme
  • Regardless of the fact that your children attend Jewish or secular schools, being a part of the JLGB family provides them with the opportunity to learn about their Jewish identity and heritage and to make Jewish friends from all over the world

And the clincher – you get them out from under your feet for an evening a week (and the odd weekend) and you know for sure they're having a fantastic time in a safe, secure and comfortable environment where no one judges and everyone does their thing.
