Want to get involved in JLM? Join us at one of our upcoming events!
JLM and Nisa Nashim, the Jewish-Muslim Women's Network, are hosting an interfaith breakfast during Labour Party Conference in Liverpool. We hope to be joined by senior Labour politicians and members of Labour's faith-based groups. The event will include a tour of the beautiful Princes Road Synagogue. It is essential to RSVP, so please do so using the form below.
Join us at our Conference social for members and friends as we look to the year ahead.
With the Conservatives' cruel attacks on refugees dominating the news, join us and our friends at the Refugee Council and HIAS+JCORE as we discuss:
'What will a Labour Government mean for refugees?'
- Enver Solomon, CEO of the Refugee Council
- Dame Diana Johnson MP, Chair of the Home Affairs Select Committee
- Dame Margaret Hodge MP, Parliamentary Chair of the Jewish Labour Movement
- Chair: Rabbi David Mason, CEO of HIAS+JCORE and JLM's Political Education Officer
Building on the success of successive JLM One Day Conferences at JW3 in London (and on Zoom in 2020), we are launching the first Jewish Labour Movement Northern Conference, in partnership with Labour Together.
Labour has to win back large swathes of the North to get back into Government, in the so-called Red Wall and classic marginals.
At this Conference we will hear from leading Labour figures about how we win the 2024 General Election, what a Labour Government would like and its implications for the Jewish community.
