Jake Doffman (Norstar London Raiders A) – Made two outstanding saves to ensure a clean sheet and a Raiders win. Getting better and better as season progresses

Simon Englander (Boca Jewniors) – Superb at left-back, didn’t put a foot wrong and bombed forward at any given chance
Mike Paterson (Brixton Old Boys) – Proved to be a great leader on the pitch, won all his tackles and got on the scoresheet
Jake Yudelowitz (Norstar Raiders C) – Marshalled the defence superbly, back to the form that earned him player of the year last season.
Alex Chernoff (Redbridge Jewish Care A) – Made his first appearance at right-back and was simply sensational

Dovi Vogel (London Rovers) – Claimed two goals and two assists, worked extremely hard both defensively and going forward
Ethan Deal (KS Reunited) – Commanding sitting in front of the back four, strong in the tackle and rarely gave the ball away
Marc Cohen (SPEC) – Drove the team forward with some excellent pressing, and claimed a stunning goal to cap off his performance
Joel Lassman (FC Team C) – Worked extremely hard for the team and scored two goals that his performance deserved.

Shim Bensoor (FC Team A) – Was prolific as he scored four times, caused the Lions defence all manner of problems and is now starting to find his shooting boots
Mitch Hahn (Woodford Wanderers) – Imperious up front, scored twice including a cracking 25-yard effort to help knock Redbridge out of cup

Tony Charles (Woodford Wanderers)

Alex Chernoff (Redbridge Jewish Care A)

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...


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.


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.
