The Board of Deputies has produced the Jewish Manifesto, which summarises the main Jewish concerns. It includes the Ten Commitments and we are asking all prospective parliamentary candidates to endorse it.

What we’re asking from you
Contact candidates in your area and ask them to endorse the Jewish Manifesto.
It has never been more important for Jewish issues to be taken seriously. It is imperative that candidates are asked to support efforts to combat antisemitism, understand the community’s bond with Israel and support the right to a Jewish way of life.
