Last weekend JLGB (Jewish Lads’ and Girls’ Brigade) held its much-anticipated Fond Memories Reunion, and it was an incredible success. The event was brought together by a small organising committee of former JLGB alumni which gave over 250 attendees the opportunity to reconnect with old friends, share their fondest JLGB memories, and learn about the modern JLGB.

There was over 8 generations of former members and leaders from all over the UK including London, Birmingham, Cardiff, Liverpool, Glasgow, Leeds, Manchester and from the USA, Canada, Israel and more. For those across the globe who couldn’t join in person, they were able to join over Zoom from around the world including Australia, Israel and Canada.

Reunion organiser, Michael Cohen, said “You can see from the photos that the event just oozed happiness. The emotive buzz, excitement and laughter carried on from the moment the event started, to the end and beyond. A huge tribute to the love, the memories and experience everyone gained from their involvement in the JLGB over the years.”

The JLGB Fond Memories Reunion was a testament to the enduring impact of a now 128 year old organisation with its ever-evolving and continuing mission to empower young people with the skills and confidence they need to become leaders and make a positive difference in the world.
