Welcome to the latest hour-long action-packed episode of The Jewish Viewsfrom The Jewish News!

Britain’s BIGGEST Jewish newspaper’s LOUDEST Jewish weekly podcast!


This week’s podcast includes a paper review with Editor of The Jewish News, Richard Ferrer.

We discuss a week of hell in France for Jews, where the situation has become so bad that community leaders have suggested people should not wear a kipper. This follows a politician being stabbed to death, a Jewish man being attacked with a machete, and ex-President, Nicholas Sarkozy, saying “We do not want French Jews to leave France because they are afraid.. We did not fight the Nazis to force the Jews to run to Israel 70 years later.”

We also discuss Fabian Hamilton’s promotion, and commitment to supporting Israel in Jeremy Corbyn’s shadow cabinet, and David Cameron’s intention to celebrate the centenary of The Balfour Declaration,

The Jewish Views also speaks to featured guests, Rabbi Jeremy Conway from Kosher London Beth Din, who tells us about The Really Jewish Food Guide 2016, Ros Berwald talks about her book ‘Shot To Death With Pearls‘, Neil Martin from Jewish Lads and Girls Brigade talks about gathering memories from World War I and on The Schmooze we discuss how sensitive we are as a community.

Plus Dr Joseph Berke talks about his book ‘The Hidden Freud: His Hasidic Roots’ and on The Jewish Schmooze we discuss tikkun olam.

AND we speak to Hertfordshire’s newly-crowed Young Entrepreneur of The Year!


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 Newsalso 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.
