Budding builders and ambitious architects are being invited to create Pesach-themed models as part of a Tribe-Jewish News competition launched today. 

We are asking our younger readers to get out their building blocks,
construction sets or Lego kits and design something that will take pride of place on your seder table

. Setting the challenge, the US’s Richard Verber said: “Maybe you will build Moses crossing the sea, the pyramids or 10 Plagues? We are delighted to enlist the support of an expert panel of judges – all under 10 years old.”

The competition is open to anyone at primary or secondary school and one winning entry in each age category will receive a 500-piece Lego set and be featured in the Jewish News! 

Send a picture of your masterpiece, along with your name and age, to competition@tribeuk.com for your chance to win. You must have permission from a parent and include their contact details so we can let them know if you’re the winner! 

The closing date is 22 March at 1pm and winners will be picked by Lyla and Eli, the children of Jewish News editor Richard Ferrer, and Motti and Sara, nephew and niece of news editor Justin Cohen, along with a representative of the US’s young division Tribe. 

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.
