On this week’s episode:

Professional Chef & Cookery Writer Denise Phillips gives us some great tips for Passover, Zara Provisor from Leket tells us how her organisation is combating food wastage in Israel and Robbie Sherman on his musical ‘A Spoonful of Sherman’ based on the works of The Sherman Brothers.

Online Editor Jack Mendel reviews The Jewish News and our Rabbinic Thought for the Week comes from Rabbi Steven Katz of Edgware & Hendon Reform Synagogue.

Help perform the greatest mitzvah: save a life

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”
