The dedication of a new Sefer Torah was a highlight of the biggest ever summer camp of Tribe, the United Synagogue's youth arm.

Over 150 teenagers joined US leaders at the ceremony in Leicestershire, which was followed by a celebratory lunch.

Tribe executive director Rabbi Andrew Shaw said: "We are thrilled that Tribe now has its own Sefer Torah to use at its events. This is yet another important milestone in the amazing growth of our organisation over the last few years."

The camp attracted participants from London, Manchester, Leeds, Liverpool, Glasgow and Edinburgh.
