What We Do

The League of Jewish Women is the leading voluntary Jewish women’s service organisation in the United Kingdom. Associated to other national and international organisations, membership is open to all Jewish women and men. Non-Jewish women and men are also welcome to join us.

The League of Jewish Women is the UK affiliate of the International Council of Jewish Women.

The League of Jewish Women is a voluntary service organisation that provides help wherever it is needed, within both the Jewish and the wider community.

As well as welfare work, the League of Jewish Women provides a range of educational and social activities in central London and local venues across the UK. The League of Jewish Women arranges seminars on Health and Social Issues subjects and LeagueArtz organises opportunities for group visits to theatres, concerts, exhibitions, gardens and buildings of special interest.

The League of Jewish Women members are organised in local groups who meet regularly for social events and to arrange their voluntary service. Some groups meet during the day or evening, and others stay in touch online and meet from time to time.

Voluntary work ranges from hospital and home visits to working in prisons and running day centres for older people. Many members also work in schools, baby clinics and contact centres. The type of work members do is as varied as the members themselves and most of it is organised locally.
