As your community newspaper, Jewish News takes great pride in reporting on the many good news stories emanating from our shuls, schools, charities, community centres and beyond. In this issue alone you can read about people raising money for charity during Chanukah and the hundreds of volunteers helping to make this year’s Limmud Conference the most ambitious yet.
It’s only through the daily efforts of these individuals and countless others that our good causes function as they do today. But it is not just on charity volunteers that we depend for our community organisations to thrive in the years to come. Who will take on leadership roles is crucial – and is a question central to the purpose of our Thirty Under 30 and Eighteen Under 18 initiatives, in association with the Jewish Leadership Council.
Our countdowns pinpoint those aged under 30 and 18 who are poised to occupy senior communal roles and those from various fields likely to shape the direction and perceptions of Anglo-Jewry through their work.
This week’s Thirty Under 30 and Eighteen Under 18 reception at JW3 was a celebration of these 21st century movers and shapers. To have them all in the same room was a memory many will share in years to come as they reach the pinnacles of their professions. Now the onus is on seeing this potential flourish.
Congratulations to all those who made the lists – and the many other young people who make a positive impact in various fields. Jewish News looks forward to reporting on your endeavours for many years to come.
