Being a Jewish student at University has many different impacts, ranging from isolating people to inspiring students to act.

This is your chance to make your voice heard and connect with people about important issues on campus.

Whether you’re on a campus with a small number of Jews such as Heythrop College, or at a University with a big Jewish student populations, such as Birmingham, there are always issues to think about.

With many diverse challenges from kashrut and challenging anti-Semitism, to issues relating to Israel and interfaith, it can be difficult to make yourself heard.

So what can you report on? If it is important to you then it could be valuable to report on!

Whether your passion is writing or film-making, photography or the radio, the Jewish News is seeking out talented and ambitious correspondents to report in their chosen field.

You could report on specifically Jewish issues, or more specifically student related issues with a Jewish angle.

Perhaps you’re into politics, and can write about what it’s like to be Jewish on campus?

Maybe you could give an insight into others reaction to you being Jewish, and how it has affected you?

Or you might be a culture-buff, who can give us the low-down on gigs, films & theatre with a Jewish theme?

It could even be the case that you’ve got a knack for humour, and can write funny Buzzfeed style articles about issues that affect Jewish students?

Whatever you’re into, we’re looking for students with an interest in the media to report from your campuses on a regular basis.

We welcome photos, videos and articles about topical events and issues that relate to the Jewish community and Jewish students.

If this sounds like it is for you, then send some information about yourself and what you’d like to report on.

Please send your details to the online editor of the Jewish news jackm@thejngroup.com, and you could become a Jewish News

Campus Correspondent for your university very soon! If successful, we may also be able to offer advice and feedback, the opportunity to gain work experience at our office in London, and vital media experience for your CV.

We look forward to hearing from you!

Support your Jewish community. Support your Jewish News

Thank you for helping to make Jewish News the leading source of news and opinion for the UK Jewish community. Today we're asking for your invaluable help to continue putting our community first in everything we do.

Unlike other Jewish media, we do not charge for content. That won’t change. Because we are free, we rely on advertising to cover our costs. This vital lifeline, which has dropped in recent years, has fallen further due to coronavirus.

For as little as £5 a month you can help sustain the vital work we do in celebrating and standing up for Jewish life in Britain.

Jewish News holds our community together and keeps us connected. Like a synagogue, it’s where people turn to feel part of something bigger. It also proudly shows the rest of Britain the vibrancy and rich culture of modern Jewish life.

You can make a quick and easy one-off or monthly contribution of £5, £10, £20 or any other sum you’re comfortable with.

100% of your donation will help us continue celebrating our community, in all its dynamic diversity...

Engaging

Being a community platform means so much more than producing a newspaper and website. One of our proudest roles is media partnering with our invaluable charities to amplify the outstanding work they do to help us all.

Celebrating

There’s no shortage of oys in the world but Jewish News takes every opportunity to celebrate the joys too, through projects like Night of Heroes, 40 Under 40 and other compelling countdowns that make the community kvell with pride.

Pioneering

In the first collaboration between media outlets from different faiths, Jewish News worked with British Muslim TV and Church Times to produce a list of young activists leading the way on interfaith understanding.

Campaigning

Royal Mail issued a stamp honouring Holocaust hero Sir Nicholas Winton after a Jewish News campaign attracted more than 100,000 backers. Jewish News also produces special editions of the paper highlighting pressing issues including mental health and Holocaust remembrance.

Easy access

In an age when news is readily accessible, Jewish News provides high-quality content free online and offline, removing any financial barriers to connecting people.

Voice of our community to wider society

The Jewish News team regularly appears on TV, radio and on the pages of the national press to comment on stories about the Jewish community. Easy access to the paper on the streets of London also means Jewish News provides an invaluable window into the community for the country at large.

We hope you agree all this is worth preserving.
