“For most of us, our holiday is just a small part of summer. The secret is to plan our summer wardrobe to be multifunctional and interchangeable so that we are not buying beautiful clothes to keep in our wardrobe for 50 weeks of the year!

Keep your summer wardrobe light. Layers are the way to go. With the long days and balmy evenings, it’s also practical to get into the desk-to-dark or kids-to-dark mentality and be able to stay cool in the same outfit without feeling the need to rush home and change.

The easy to wear Suzy D range consists of basic essentials that will get you through the summer, stylishly and effortlessly. Our stunning crocheted waistcoat can be worn as a cover up for the beach or with a pair of shorts and vest to pop to the shops.

This is definitely the year of the kaftan and we have a range of the most beautiful colours and patterns that will do the job, whether you are around the pool or out for lunch.

We have taken the classic maxi dress and dressed it up with a silk overlay. Available in four colours, this will be the perfect choice for a balmy holiday night along with some platforms as well as on the school run with some flat sandals.

The secret to the dressing up or down of an outfit is in the accessories and we have everything you need to complete your summer look. We have a stunning range of jewellery and handbags – this year, Suzy D has become known as the first stop for beach bags!

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.
