Programme produced by the Association of Jewish Ex-Service Men and Women (AJEX), Cardiff South Wales Branch, setting out a number of remembrance services and parades held in November 2005. The events listed in the programme include a City of Cardiff Remembrance Service and march at the Cenotaph, Cardiff, a remembrance service at the Penylan Synagogue and a ceremony and parade at the Cenotaph, London, with a service led by the Chief Rabbi Sir Jonathan Sacks.

The Association of Jewish Ex-Servicemen and Women (AJEX) is a charity, originally founded in 1929 to serve the needs of Jewish veterans of the First World War (1914-18). AJEX is primarily now dedicated to the remembrance of Jewish men and women who died while serving with the UK armed forces and every year since 1930, AJEX has held a parade and ceremony at the Cenotaph at Whitehall. AJEX also seeks to promote the welfare needs of Armed Service Veterans and dependant relatives, for example by giving financial assistance on the main Jewish festivals during the year to enable recipients to enjoy traditional holiday observance. AJEX also founded the Jewish Military Museum and runs an education programme which goes into both Jewish and non-Jewish schools to talk about Remembrance, citizenship and duty, as well as World War I and World War II.
