Kenim across the UK

In Manchester and Leeds we run fortnightly sessions for chanichimot using our innovative, creative and unique informal education methods. We cover a huge array of topics covering Judaism, Zionism and Socialism! We truly believe in the value (and fun!) of weekly engagement with our chanichim (participants) – and that is why we run our weekly Kenim throughout the UK! So, if you’re looking for a fun and exciting way to meet new people and learn some cool things, pop along to our Kenim. All of our Youth Leaders are fully trained and ready to ensure your Sundays are extra-fun before going back to school! Currently, we do not have an active Ken in London. Glasgow Ken will be up and running this year, led by Gideon Blankstone (


London Ken

This year (22/23) we hope to run fortnightly fun and cultured classic youth movement activities and like all good Jewish events we always end it with some food.  We will explore Jewish identities, connection with Israel as well as a variety of worldly concepts including bullying, stereotypes, environmentalism and equality. Please bear with us whilst we find a location for this new year!

We also run Shabbatonim (residential weekends) and Summer Camps so please contact,uk for more information on this.

Manchester Ken

Manchester Ken IS BACK! Please email for the sign up form!

Manchester Ken has been running for many years and we are hoping to give it a re-vamp this year to make it even better. We encourage inclusive behaviour throughout and teach Jewish values in the most unique and fun way possible. We ran fortnightly activities with team-bonding, informal education around our Habo values and lots of really fun games. We are also active in Manchester schools ranging from primary to sixth form colleges where we come in to run JSOCS, lunch time clubs and Jewish assemblies. We have had up to 90 sign ups for Manchester Ken so far this year!

Glasgow Ken

We’re a fun and exciting ken up in Bonnie Scotland. With so much potential here, we are so excited to bring back Glasgow Ken. Our Rosh Glasgow, Gideon Blankstone, is ready to build up a strong tzevet (team) of experienced and committed madrichim (leaders) who plan and run each week of activities. Highlights of the past few years in Glasgow have included: a Zero Night Seder, Friday Night Dinners, baking days, day trips and massive arts and crafts projects.
