Strictly-Orthodox leader shares platform with leading Jews for Jesus evangelist

Judith Nemeth appeared alongside Tony Rucinski of the International Mission to Jewish People on a debate about relationship and sex education in schools

The strictly-Orthodox Jewish leader of an organisation promoting faith values has shared an online platform with one of the UK’s leading Jews For Jesus evangelists.

Judith Nemeth, former executive director of the National Association of Jewish Orthodox Schools, appeared in a YouTube talk with Tony Rucinski last week to discuss relationship and sex education in schools.

Rucinski is a leading member of the International Mission to Jewish People, which is motivated by “conviction that Jewish people need to hear the Good News of Jesus.”

Nemeth, the current executive director of the inter-faith Values Foundation for Faith and Family in Education, appeared on the talk to discuss Government changes to sex education (RSE).

Giving advice to parents on the video, Nemeth said: “There are some ideological resource providers who are determined to sexualise your child from the age of four, are determined to ensure your child goes through a process of questioning his gender … who are driven to equate heterosexual relationships and homosexual relationships.”

Jewish News contacted both Nemeth and the Values Foundation for comment but did not receive a response before publication.

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.

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.

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.
