2MANAGERSTHE LATEST war of words between two Sunday morning football managers is one of the fiercest yet, and while the game is now over, the feud isn’t. Redbridge B manager Jon Jacobs took exception to pre and post-match comments made by Hendon A boss David Garbacz, calling him ‘classless’ and criticising his behaviour. Also not holding back on the state of Hendon’s pitch – or cow patch to quote Jacobs, the Redbridge man is most certainly looking forward to their next meeting next week, promising an ‘East London’ welcome and a door for their dressing room!

HAVING WON her nation’s heart by becoming the first Israel to win gold at the Judo World Championships last year, Yarden Gerbi is now attracting even more adulation and respect. The 25-year-old has auctioned the red backpatch she wore when claiming the title in Rio de Janeiro to raise funds to help fight children’s cancer. Donating the money to the Ichilov Hospital in Tel Aviv, she said: “A few weeks ago I visited the children’s ward at Ichilov Hospital in Tel Aviv and met with some amazing children, I will donate the money to the children’s ward …let’s help these kids become champions too.” Taking to Ebay to sell the backpatch, she’s so far raised just over £1,000.

STILL GOING strong is swimmer Susan Halter, who whenever she dives into the pool, seems to comes out at the other end with a gold medal or two. This past weekend was no exception as competing at the British Gas ASA National Masters & Senior Age Group Championships in Sheffield, she claimed another three wins in the 50, 100 and 200m backstroke events. Claiming a fastest finish in two years in the 100m, Halter, who now competes in the 85-90 age group, continues to be an example to us all.

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

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.
