HRH PRINCE PHILIP, THE DUKE OF EDINBURGH

It was with deep sadness that we learnt of the passing of HRH Prince Philip, The Duke of Edinburgh. The JLGB is proud to have had such a long association with His Royal Highness since he first created his Award scheme 65 years ago.

Since then, taking on the challenge of the The Duke of Edinburgh's Award has become a rite of passage for thousands of Jewish teenagers in our community, with many receiving their Gold Award from the Duke himself.

In so many encounters across generations that our young award participants and volunteers were honoured to have with him, he would always instantly recognise those from JLGB and would take extra time to speak with them about their experiences.

With great enthusiasm and intrigue he also took a keen interest in understanding the specialist kosher expedition provision JLGB provides to ensure Jewish young people could fully access the DofE.

Many of our alumni today will also fondly remember the Royal Albert Hall ‘Cavalcade’ event of 1976 (pictured), where The Duke of Edinburgh was our guest of honour.

His legacy and impact will live on through the millions of young people who have been empowered with the skills, confidence and resilience they need to realise their potential and make a positive difference in their local communities and wider society.

We send our deepest sympathies to Her Majesty The Queen, our Patron HRH The Prince of Wales and all The Royal Family.
