This is an increasingly important event in the Jewish calendar as fewer and fewer veterans are left to demonstrate publicly the Jewish community's commitment to its role in the UK armed forces and the fight against fascism. Groups march under various banners e.g. towns, suburbs, synagogues etc. You can join any group that you may have some association with. The two represented East-End youth clubs: Brady Clubs & Oxford & St Georges may be a natural home for you! Contact AJEX, book a ticket and march with pride.
