THE BOARD OF DEPUTIES OF BRITISH JEWS IS THE VOICE OF THE BRITISH JEWISH COMMUNITY, THE FIRST PORT OF CALL FOR GOVERNMENT, THE MEDIA AND OTHERS SEEKING TO UNDERSTAND JEWISH COMMUNITY INTERESTS AND CONCERNS.
Our advocacy delivers tangible results. Our elected leadership is supported by a professional team without parallel in our community. The work of the Board of Deputies reaches those in positions of influence in towns and cities across the UK including those who have little exposure to the Jewish community. It is through tools such as the innovative ‘Jewish Manifesto’ series that we have been able to extend our reach further than ever across the whole of the UK.
The Board of Deputies works in a range of areas on a host of issues. We work to combat antisemitism from wherever it emanates, express our community’s bond with the State of Israel, defend Jewish education and educate wider society about Judaism and build bridges through interfaith relations. We are also the foremost point of contact for London’s diplomatic community, and the UK affiliate of the European Jewish Congress and World Jewish Congress.
