Voice of the Jewish News: Lighten lockdown with our Shtisel screening!

This week's editorial gives our readers something to keep spirits up, as Covid restrictions continue. Watch series three of the hit Israeli show early, with our exclusive offer!

Just when you thought there was nothing to lift the mood of the community, along comes Shtisel 3.

Your love for the Israeli drama series was duly noted by Jewish News, so we have pulled out all the stops to bring you three episodes of the new series, to watch months before it is streamed here in the UK, an exclusive Q&A with the cast and creative team and a look behind the scenes!

The British premiere of Shtisel 3 from January 14-17 will reunite you with the Orthodox family that has become a global sensation. Shtisel 3 has been described by the Israeli press as the greatest drama the country has produced and our event gives you access to the creative team responsible for that magic.

There is no better time than now to spoil yourself. 

You deserve some happiness! So visit www.seret-international.org and book your tickets today.

Amnesty at its nastiest

The predictability of Amnesty International’s inference – that Israel just vaccinates Jews, not Palestinians – was perhaps the allegation’s most disturbing aspect this week.

Forget that the Palestinian Authority insists it’ll run its own vaccination programme, thank you, or that Israeli Arabs are just as likely as Israeli Jews to be vaccinated, because that kind of thing gets in the way of a soundbite such as “institutional discrimination”. 

We always suspected that the pandemic would bring out the worst inclinations in people. That it brings the worst out of an organisation charged with protecting human rights is far more disappointing than surprising. 

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

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.
