MS 384 Archives of the Jewish Youth Fund

Jewish Youth Fund

The Jewish Youth Fund was established in 1937 to commemorate the coronation of King George VI with the object of strengthening Anglo-Jewish youth work.

Until the early 1960s the resources of the Jewish Youth Fund tended to be used to purchase or build Jewish youth work premises. As the Jewish community moved to new areas, however, most of the original premises were sold and the proceeds of this form the Jewish Youth Fund capital funds. Skeet Hill House, the sole remaining property, is operated as a conference and activity centre managed by The Bradians Trust. 

The Fund continues its work of making grants or loans to Jewish youth organisations throughout Great Britain to support projects that will enhance the Jewish youth service.
