Community Security Trust (CST) and The Jewish Military Association (AJEX) held a special dedication to unveil a new CST flag standard.

The ceremony was led by Rabbi Major Reuben Livingstone, senior Jewish Chaplain to HM Armed Forces and AJEX and attended by representatives from both organisations.


The highlight of the event was the presentation of the new Standard, sponsored by AJEX JMA member Joe Silver to reflect his deep appreciation for CST’s unwavering support to AJEX. It represents a symbol of collaboration, gratitude, and a shared commitment to safeguarding and serving the community.

The Standard will be displayed at parades, gatherings, and public events to proudly represent the esteemed contribution to Jewish life by CST.

Present at the ceremony were CST Chief Executive, Mark Gardner MBE, Dan Fox, the national Chair of AJEX JMA, vice Chair Mike Bluestone, and Chief Executive Fiona Palmer, along with several other esteemed members from both organisations.

Gardner said: “This is a very meaningful moment for CST and AJEX, marking an even stronger friendship between us. Both of our organisations are proud to protect the freedoms upon which we all depend for our way of life.”

Fox said: “CST is the modern incarnation of all Jewish communities’ proud and brave traditions in self-defence. It is wholly right that the work of its staff and volunteers is recognised and celebrated. The CST Standard embodies this leadership, commitment and service”.
