Kosher DofE with JLGB

As your own children have experienced first-hand, each year more and more Jewish young people
have been able to access a kosher and Shabbat friendly Duke of Edinburgh’s Award (DofE) provision
thanks to the JLGB.
This year over 800 Jewish young people took part in Kosher DofE with JLGB – a record breaking
number which brings the total to over 3000 participants in the last 5 years.
However, what you may not realise is that many of these young people were subsidised so that they
could take a full and active part in the world’s leading youth achievement award.
Like any charity, JLGB relies solely on the unwavering generosity of its benefactors and any support
you can give will make a huge difference. A small donation of just £99 pays for a young Jewish
person to participate in the DofE but without your generosity they wouldn’t be able to do it at all.
We are proud that JLGB now delivers the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award in every Jewish secondary
school in the UK with over 50% of Year 9 pupils taking part - but we want to do even more! We
want to increase the uptake of Jewish children from non-Jewish schools, provide more single gender
provision for orthodox communities and offer even more adapted expeditions to children with physical
and earning disabilities.
Please help us make positive activities and achievement awards accessible to all Jewish young people
who want to participate regardless of their financial or personal circumstances.
Thank you for your support and on behalf of everyone at the JLGB, may I wish you and your family
a happy and healthy new year.
