London Jewish Forum

The London Jewish Forum (LJF) is dedicated to the promotion of Jewish life in London. The Forum provides a platform for engagement between London Jewry and the Greater London Authority, Mayor's Office, London Boroughs and MPs / MEPs. It works to promote the full and active engagement of the Jewish community with civic life in London. The LJF will work to oppose anti-semitism, racism and all forms of discrimination in London. The LJF works with all parts of the Jewish community regardless of religious; cultural or political affiliations or beliefs.

The London Jewish Forum has five key platforms: Housing, Citizenship, Community Relations, Sports & Culture and Youth & Students. The Chair of London Jewish Forum is Adrian Cohen and appointed Alexander Goldberg as its Chief Executive in July 2008.

The Forum has broad Jewish representation on it and is the only cross-communal body to include all elements of the Jewish community in London. The Forum includes leading members of the Jewish community from a variety of organisations. The Chief Executives of the Jewish Leadership Council, Board of Deputies, Jewish Museum Interlink and the Jewish Community Centre are on their board along with senior lay leaders.

Famous quotes containing the words forum, london and/or jewish:

    That age will be rich indeed when those relics which we call Classics, and the still older and more than classic but even less known Scriptures of the nations, shall have still further accumulated, when the Vaticans shall be filled with Vedas and Zendavestas and Bibles, with Homers and Dantes and Shakespeares, and all the centuries to come shall have successively deposited their trophies in the forum of the world. By such a pile we may hope to scale heaven at last.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    The earth is mankind’s ultimate haven, our blessed terra firma. When it trembles and gives way beneath our feet, it’s as though one of God’s cheques has bounced.
    Gilbert Adair, British author, critic. quoted in: London Sunday Correspondent Magazine (Dec. 24, 1989)

    For a Jewish Puritan of the middle class, the novel is serious, the novel is work, the novel is conscientious application—why, the novel is practically the retail business all over again.
    Howard Nemerov (1920–1991)
