Aish UK was created in 1993 to offer inspiring and relevant Jewish education and experiences for young Jews in the UK. We believe that the Jewish tradition is not only deep and fulfilling, but also relevant, engaging and compelling to the young person today.
Over the past 20 years, theory has been born out by practice. The demand for trips, events and courses has grown enormously. Today Aish serves almost every high school with a sizeable Jewish population, and University Jewish Societies from Durham to Bristol. We run young professionals branches and programmes in Manchester, Hampstead, Essex and the City of London.
‘To translate the wisdom, depth and beauty of our heritage to young British Jews.’
