Established 250 years ago, the Board of Deputies of British Jews exists to promote and defend the religious rights and civil liberties of British Jews. As the community's democratically elected cross-communal representative body, the Board of Deputies connects with government, media and wider society, providing a unique means through which all British Jews can be heard and represented. We also carry out education, interfaith and social action projects and advocacy.

Your donation will be used to help in these vital tasks.

The Yellow Candle Project

Organisers of the Yellow Candle Project, which remembers victims of the Holocaust as part of Yom Hashoah, said they hope to double the number of candles given out next year.

Thousands of people across the country took part in the initiative, which was established in the USA more than 30 years ago, and introduced to this country last year by Masorti Judaism.

Paul Harris, chair of the UK project, said he wanted to double the amount of candles given out to individuals and organisations and expand it outside the Jewish community.
