The United Synagogue is to invest an extra £123,000 into its educational programmes, including the organisation's youth movement Tribe.
Stephen Fenton, the US honorary treasurer, told council representatives on Monday night: "We must look after the future of our children."
The extra money will be used to strengthen the United Synagogue's new Living and Learning department, an initiative by chief executive Jeremy Jacobs. The new department consolidates all the US education programmes, including Tribe, under one banner.
