VOICE OF THE JEWISH NEWS: Honouring Her Majesty

Queenie--929x1024The images of a seven-year-old Princess Elizabeth mimicking a Nazi style salute in 1933 refocused attention on long-standing questions about the links between other members of the Royal Family and the Third Reich.

..But it shouldn’t cast any shadow over the Queen’s efforts during the Second World War, her record of dedicated service or the wholly positive relationship between Her Majesty and Anglo-Jewry throughout her reign – which becomes the longest in British history in September.

Her Majesty led the celebrations for the Board of Deputies 250th anniversary and has been a patron of Holocaust Memorial Day since the outset.

More broadly, she has leant her name and clout to countless good causes, helped ensure the UK maintains its magnetic allure for visitors the world over and represented the UK’s interests abroad.

The Queen, who is 89, continues to maintain a busy diary in service of country and Commonwealth, including a poignant recent visit to Bergen Belsen.

We couldn’t let this moment pass without our own small bow to Her Majesty with our children’s art competition.

We look forward to receiving entries from many dozens of our younger readers – and to crowning the contest’s king or queen.

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.
