Jewish News is proud of its expanding partnership with Chelsea Football Club. Together we have launched an art project at Stamford Bridge in tribute to Jewish footballers murdered by the Nazis, held a gala dinner to help raise funds for the Imperial War Museum’s new Holocaust Galleries and produced a special edition of Jewish News to mark the 75th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz.

This week we unveil our most ambitious joint project yet – an online exhibition honouring Jewish Olympic athletes killed in the Holocaust. Read more here.

The 49 Flames initiative, telling the stories of 15 remarkable sportsmen and women, includes an introductory video message from club manager Frank Lampard and women’s team boss Emma Hayes and contributions from Lord (Sebastian) Coe, Israel’s president Reuven Rivlin, Natan Sharansky, Lord (John) Mann, Sir Ben Helfgott, Holocaust educators and the editor of Jewish News.

We invite you to view the exhibition at www.49flames.com

 

Seeking out the light

Chanukah, the festival of light and hope, arrives today at the end of a year defined by darkness and difficulty for our community, our country, indeed the entire world.

The Covid-19 pandemic has claimed more than a million lives and put billions more lives on hold. Thankfully, the turmoil and heartache was eased this week by the sight of the vaccination programme starting in hospitals nationwide.

Let us find light where we can, in the shape of greasy latkes, chocolate gelt and Carmelli’s new black forest gateau doughnut, designed by our Chanukah competition winners Heather Marchant and Michelle Watson!

Jewish News wishes all its readers a hearty chag sameach and a happy, healthy and pandemic-free 2021.

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...

Engaging

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.

Celebrating

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.

Pioneering

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.

Campaigning

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.
