A Jewish primary school in Manchester has launched a weekly TV show in an attempt to help the community stay in touch during lockdown.

KDTV, created by King David Primary School in Manchester, is a collection of episodes made and presented by the school’s children.

It will stream each week to the King David Manchester Community and shows what the pupils have been doing during their time away from school.

Episodes include pupils showing their pets, their musical talents, cooking skills, and fitness workouts. Each one is presented by children introducing the different clips.

Yaacov Goldin, who teachers at King David Primary School, says

“During this lockdown we felt it was so important to be able to still connect as a community and also give our children something to keep busy and help entertain others. Not seeing friends and not having the extracurricular activities that all our children love doing, we tapped into the talents that our children have! We know they love making videos, so why not put a “TV” show together. The series has proved so popular that it is possible that it could continue even after lockdown as we have enough material to last 6-8 weeks with even more being made all the time!! ”

You can access KDTV from the School website or the School Facebook Page! Thank you to

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.
