United Kingdom – National Jewish Scout Fellowship (NJSF) – the Scout Association

The_Scout_Association_boutonThere are about 270,000 Jews living in Great Britain today. Many belong to synagogues scattered throughout the country, but a great majority live in the Greater London area and other large cities.

There are about 16 Jewish Scout Groups with approximately 750 Scouts, both male and female. Many Jewish Scout Groups are sponsored by their synagogue. The Jewish community in Scouting encourages religious growth and learning in young people. Jewish Scouts also join existing non Jewish Groups and participate in all activities providing they do not conflict with their religious beliefs.
