JLGB Local Groups learn to knit blankets for Refugees on Mitzvah Day 

JLGB local groups united on Mitzvah Day thanks to the heroic efforts of parents, grandparents, young adults and students in the community to teach young people how to knit. Each attendee knit a small square that was then compiled into a blanket for the Ukrainian War refugees. 

JLGB is so much more than a youth group: It’s a proven investment in your children’s future.

Thousands of young people benefit from JLGB’s character-building and life-enhancing skills programmes.

At JLGB we focus on the individual and aim to recognise and enhance every young person’s potential, building their character to develop their leadership, communication, organisation, initiative, resilience, confidence and creativity. Our local weekly groups have skilled up and empowered Jewish young people across the UK, giving them a wide range of new skills while honing their unique abilities to enable them to achieve in the future.

Building young people’s assets and enhancing their skills starts from as young as 8 years old at your local JLGB group. Skills programmes, run by young leaders, are delivered at our 30 weekly groups all across the UK. Find a group in your area, including:

Barnet, Birmingham, Borehamwood, Brighton, Bushey, Cardiff, Edgware, Finchley, Glasgow, Hampstead, Kingston, Leeds, Liverpool, Manchester, Mill Hill, Muswell Hill, Newcastle, Nottingham, Oxford, Radlett, Shenley, Redbridge, Wimbledon, Woodford and more.


Places for our weekly groups are limited, so parents please make sure you register in advance online at:
