The League of Jewish Women ( LJW) is a voluntary organisation caring for the needs of the entire Jewish community, spanning the whole spectrum of denominations from Reform to Orthodox…and even in the wider community, mainly within the UK.
We are NOT primarily fund raisers but occasionally have speakers, outings and social events to raise funds to cover the costs of tea parties and transport for the senior citizens we entertain. Other Shuls in the vicinity do similar work, but there are many Jewish people who are not members of any Synagogues who rely on our help for shopping, transport to hospital appointments etc.
The Head Office in London holds seminars several times a year on Health and Social Issues, for members to increase their own awareness and for information. These events encourage friendships within the organization and help groups to find speakers for their local community.
