The World Council of
coordinates the activities of our various
communities. It builds networks between the
rabbis, professionals and lay leaderships of
European communities and nurtures their growth.
Masorti Europe represents
us in international forums in Israel and across
Europe. It extends the provision of Noam and
Marom to communities across the continent.
Masorti Europe supports the development of our
smaller Masorti communities. This includes
re-establishing Jewish communities in countries
such as Spain and Portugal where Jews have lived
in hiding for hundreds of years, and in
communities in Eastern Europe that are only now
re-establishing themselves after the holocaust,
or after decades of communism.
We are proud to the
recipients of a Grundtvig grant from the
European Union for the ‘Strategies for Voluntary
Work in Europe’ partnership. Together with 9
other Masorti communities from Portugal, Spain,
France, The Netherlands, Germany, the Czech
Republic, Hungary and the UK we are sharing our
experiences in involving volunteers in the life
of our communities and learning new skills from

The European Masorti Bet Din
The Masorti Movement combines a commitment
to Jewish tradition and to the best of the values of modern
western society. The European Masorti Bet Din provides advanced
Rabbinic services to Masorti communities in Europe. We oversee
conversions and divorce procedures, supervise the catering of
Kosher food, and rule on complex issues of Jewish Law.
The Masorti Bet Din has launched a
new Kosher Supervision facility. On this site you will find
everything you need to know about catering a Kosher function
WHY MASORTI KOSHER?
Many organisations supervise Kosher
catering in the UK, yet, people who would like to host a Kosher
function still choose not to do so. If you find that the cost of
Kosher catering is prohibitive; the range of Kosher caterers is
limited or you wish to work with a particular caterer or venue
that isn’t supervised, we may have the answer to your needs.
A wedding, a Bar or Bat Mitzvah is a
meaningful Jewish moment. It is proper that they are marked with
a Kosher meal.
The Masorti Bet Din has introduced
arrangements for a non-supervised caterer to apply for a
“one-day licence” for a single event. If you are looking to
expand your Kosher options, this could be the ideal catering
solution you are seeking.
