Raising our Progressive Jewish voice in the wider world

The leaders of Progressive Judaism are continuing the work of making sure that our voice is heard both within the Jewish community and the wider world.

With Progressive Judaism representing one third of all synagogue affiliated Jews in the UK, this voice matters. It is essential that our values are represented on the national stage and that we are in relationship with those who shape the society in which we live.

A lot of attention is being given to this work, and one result has been a number of meetings between Progressive Judaism’s Co-Leads, Rabbis Charley Baginsky and Josh Levy, and civic and political leaders from across the spectrum.

In a recent meeting with the Leader of the Opposition, Sir Keir Starmer, Rabbis Josh and Charley discussed a range of subjects including: the needs of the Jewish community; the potential role of the faith sector in work with Government and how the Labour Party views the role of places of worship; and faith communities in the delivery of social policy.

They also spoke about our belief in the importance of investment in community cohesion projects and interfaith work, as well as approaching issues of extremism.
