Nottingham J-Soc pitch in to Save a Child’s Heart

Love may have been in the air last week but, for the University of Nottingham’s generous J-Soc, mending the hearts of children in need of desperate cardiovascular surgery was the only date worth caring about.

Nottingham J-Soc‘s fundraising week for Israeli charity Save a Child’s Heart saw the team selling raffle tickets, hosting a charity pre-drinks party and sitting down to a Valentine’s themed Friday Night Dinner with all proceeds going to cardiac care for children from developing countries.

J-Soc President Jordan Rinsler: “I am so proud of every single committee member for all the incredible hard work they put into the fundraiser for SACH. Also a big thank you to everyone who donated and came along  to any of our events. The money is going to a really worthwhile cause and we are delighted to have been a part of that.”

Campaign officers Daniel Pittal, Daniella Dines and Laurie Hirschowitz were also thrilled to have the chance to raise funds for “a very worthy campaign for a very worthy cause that puts all politics aside and is something everyone from all backgrounds can relate to and feel a part of.”

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 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.
