Design a doughnut for Chanukah!

We’ve joined forces with the United Synagogue and Carmelli’s in Golders Green for their competition to design a new doughnut to celebrate the upcoming festival.

Jewish News readers are set for an extra sweet Chanukah with the chance to create a new doughnut to be sold by London’s best-known kosher bakery.

We’ve joined forces with the United Synagogue and Carmelli’s in Golders Green for their competition to design a new doughnut to celebrate the upcoming festival.

“Sweet or savoury, meaty, milky or parev, the only limit is your imagination,” said Richard Verber, Communications Director at the US. “We’re looking for some fabulous new doughnut flavours to set taste buds alight this Chanukah.”

Community members have just under a week to submit ideas for the Design a Doughnut competition before the top three entries are put to a public vote. The winning entry will be turned into a real doughnut by Carmelli’s and sold in the bakery throughout Chanukah.

A big box of doughnuts is the prize for whoever comes up with the best idea with the winner crowned on 2 December live on air during the United Synagogue’s Rabbi Steady Cook programme on

Entries should be submitted by 8pm on Wednesday 25 November. via

Meanwhile, a drawing competition for young people has also been launched.

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.

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.


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.


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.
