The London School of Jewish Studies (LSJS) is a renowned organization that provides adult education and teacher training courses to the wider Jewish community. LSJS offers inspiring educational programs that transmit a love for learning and achieve excellence in teaching to transform the Jewish community in the UK and around the world. Their teacher training, degree courses, and adult education programs are delivered in person and online, as well as system-wide curriculum and professional development within Jewish education. Pardes House is an expanding, uniformed, single-sex elementary school for orthodox Jewish children located in Finchley, northwest London.
The school's main catchment area is the Jewish communities of North West London and sometimes beyond. Most of the students arrive at school from the private kindergarten located in the same place, and almost all of them live in North West London. Jews' College is the center for rabbinic studies of the traditional Orthodox community, while Leo Baeck College trains progressive rabbis. Benjamin Disraeli, a member of parliament of Jewish origin during that period, was prime minister twice, in 1868 and later from 1874 to 1880, and is considered the first Jewish prime minister. At Rimon, they offer a value-based curriculum, in which children's secular (national curriculum) and Jewish studies are integrally linked to modern orthodox Jewish practice. The Community Security Trust (CST) works to protect British Jews and Jewish institutions in the United Kingdom from anti-Semitism and related threats.
The JW3, London's impressive Jewish community center, is a fixture of Jewish life and culture both in London and in the United Kingdom in general. The chief rabbi of the United Kingdom effectively represents most Orthodox Jewish communities and is named after the United Synagogue. Jewish media in the United Kingdom reflect the diversity of the community: The Jewish Chronicle, The Jewish News, The Jewish Telegraph, Hamodia, The Jewish Tribune, Jewish Renaissance, and Jewish Quarterly offer cultural offerings while several local radio stations broadcast weekly programs of Jewish interest. Between 1938 and 1939, until the outbreak of World War II on September 1, 1939, the United Kingdom Government allowed nearly 10,000 Jewish children from Germany, Austria and Nazi-occupied Czechoslovakia to reach the United Kingdom in a rescue operation known as Kindertransport. This allowed these children to escape deportation to concentration and death camps. The main representative body of the British Jewish community is the Board of Deputies of British Jews, the British branch of the World Jewish Congress.
