What We Do

BFRHR regularly organises visits to Israel and the Occupied Territories to see the work of Rabbis for Human RIghts in the field. Another tour for rabbis is planned for November 2014. Learn more

BFRHR also arrange visits to Britain for RHR executives; including a 2012 visit of Rabbi Arik Ascherman, one of the founders of RHR, who spoke in synagogues in London, Birmingham, Bristol and Manchester as well as meeting the rabbinical students at Leo Baeck College and representatives of the Methodist and Quaker communities.

In the near future, BFRHR also hopes to initiate a programme of education on Jewish ethical teachings, similar to the one run by RHR in Israel. This will be aimed both at adults and youngsters in our schools and synagogues.
