Fear over youth identity

    The Jewish Leadership Council has set up a commission to look at provision for young Jews — its third commission following previous inquiries into Jewish schools and women in leadership.

    According to the JLC, there is “concern that many young people in the UK reach adulthood without a strong Jewish identity and without a relationship with Israel”.

    Traditionally, the Jewish youth movement sector in the UK has been recognised as the one of the strongest in any diaspora country.

    The commission, established in partnership with the UJIA, will consider the impact of the growth of Jewish schools and assess future demand for youth provision.

    Meanwhile, Maccabi GB has become the latest Jewish organisation to join the JLC. Maccabi chairman Michael Ziff will sit on the JLC’s council.
