The Jewish Labour Movement (JLM) is run by and for our members. As the successor organisation to Poale Zion we have been affiliated to the UK Labour Party for almost a century. Our mission is to support the Labour movement in the best traditions of proud Jewish Labour activism.
Membership of the JLM enables you to take part in the decisions we make on which campaigns we will take part in, how we continue to build our movement and how we work as an affiliate of the Labour Party.
