Jewish Views Podcast: Chanukah In The Square SPECIAL EDITION

In an action packed episode the team reports from the community's celebrations for the festival of light in the heart of London

This week we speak to Ron Kampeas of the Jewish Telegraphic Agency, following the death of George H W Bush, about his life and his remarkable ties to the global Jewish community.

In a special report we get all of the action from this years Chanukah in the Square 2018, we’ll hear from the Chief Rabbi, Mayor of London Sadiq Khan, Israeli Ambassador Mark Regev, familiar friends of The Jewish Views and some of the punters who braved the elements to watch it live.

Editor Richard Ferrer & Supplements Editor, Brigit Grant review The Jewish News.

Our Rabbinic Thought for the Week comes from Rabbi Aaron Goldstein of Northwood & Pinner Liberal Synagogue.

Help perform the greatest mitzvah: save a life

While life in Israel has returned to normal and hopes are high that Britain is set for a summer without restrictions thanks to vaccines, for billions around the world there is no such imminent light at the end of the tunnel. In the majority of countries around the globe, particularly the poorest, the vaccine rollout has barely kicked off.

That's why Jewish News, the leading source of news and opinion for the entire UK community, is throwing its full weight behind UNICEF’s VaccinAid campaign by using this platform usually reserved for encouraging donations towards our own journalism to instead urge our readers around the globe to perform the greatest mitzvah: saving a life.

We have never before done this for any charity fundraiser but it's hard to recall a campaign that affects so many people, and indeed an entire planet aching for a return to normality. Just like the Chief Rabbi and Rachel Riley, we hope to boost the mission to deliver two billion vaccines, 165 million treatments and 900 million test kits around the world by the end of this year.

Please donate as much as you can, in the spirit of the Talmudic sages: “to save one life is to save the world entire”
