A dog called ‘Mini’ was said to be “enjoying life as a celebrity in the Jewish pet world” this week, after bagging a pet prize run by charity Jewish Blind & Disabled.

JBD’s PETron competition saw 24 “really cute” entrants including dogs, cats, rabbits and even chicks, but Mini raised the biggest smile from the judges.

“It was very tough to pick a winner but we loved the way that Mini looked like she was trying to walk on her hind legs,” said judge Ashley Blaker, a comedian, noting that Mini will now receive a special goodie bag donated by PetsPyjamas.

Mini’s ‘Dad’ Zac said: “Mini is really enjoying her new celebrity status in the Jewish dog community. More importantly she is delighted to support such a worthwhile cause, enabling people to live independently who might otherwise lead restricted and even isolated lives.”

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”
