Our press gang
Pencil this date into your virtual diary. On Monday evening at 8.30pm the editors of four of the biggest Jewish publications around the world, including Jewish News, will take part in an Ask The Editors questions and answer session, broadcast across the publications’ websites and social media platforms.
Joining our very own Richard Ferrer are Times Of Israel’s David Horovitz, the Australian Jewish News’ Zeddy Lawrence (who used to edit this newspaper) and the Atlanta Jewish Times’ Kaylene Ladinsky (more information on page five). They’ll be discussing the threats facing media in the Covid-19 crisis, antisemitism and the challenges of print and digital media.

Ones to watch
So much has changed in the five years since we last ran our illustrious Forty Under 40 initiative in association with the Jewish Leadership Council. Indeed, under lockdown, 2015 seems a lifetime ago.
When we finally emerge from this virus twilight zone our community’s prosperity will, in no small measure, be the responsibility of those we begin to showcase this week on pages 12 and 13.
Excelling in fields including politics, religion, education, charity and the arts, their accomplishments provide a reassuring moral boost when it’s needed most. It might not seem so today as we remain separated, isolated and frustrated, but there is so much to aspire to and reach for.
