The League of Jewish Women ( LJW) is a national and international voluntary service organisation that provides help wherever it is needed both in the Jewish and the wider community. It is the leading Jewish women’s voluntary services organisation in the UK.
In Leicester volunteers host regular tea-parties with home-made sandwiches and cake for people living alone. Guests are driven to and from the venues. We also visit the sick and lonely at home or in hospital and several members help to run the Shalom Club, the weekly community day centre, by being cooks, drivers and helpers.
We do not fundraise but have an occasional social event. The Rabbi’s wife, Rivkie Pink, is an honorary member.
All are welcome. Contact Jacqui Coleman or Ruth Neuberg through the contact page for more details.
