VOICE OF THE JEWISH NEWS: Faces of the future

Voice of the Jewish News

Jewish News’ Twenty-Five Under 25 and Forty Under 40 reception at Facebook headquarters was a celebration very much in the here and now. But for many of the 100 special guests assembled, their time is still to come.

In recent weeks, this newspaper finally put an end to every Jewish mother’s anticipation by revealing the communal stars of tomorrow in our Under 40 and Under 25 lists – topped respectively by Labour party MP Luciana Berger and UJS president Ella Rose.

Unlike other communal countdowns, ours were not concerned with those who have already made it big, but those who are about to.

So those who graced our celebration reception truly are the faces of the future. To have them all in the same room last Thursday night was a memory many will share in years to come as they reach the pinnacles of their professions.

As your community newspaper, we schlepped nachas showcasing the vibrant pool of talent that exists among us. But of course these lists are just the start.

Now the onus is on seeing this potential flourish by encouraging and nurturing our brightest and best.

To quote Facebook vice president Nicola Mendelsohn’s rousing reception speech: ”We are stronger, wiser and better when we band together. Think of the ways you can help each other – all of us together are better than any one of us alone.”

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 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.
