The Jewish News can today reveal the winner of the Choose Your Own Cheesecake competition in partnership with the United Synagogue and COCO Bakery.

Hundreds of votes came in, and the winning flavour which will be made and sold at COCO Bakery ahead of Shavuot is S’mores Cheesecake, making 4-year-old David Kaufman of Golders Green, Natalie Braham of Hendon, and Rebbetzen Blima Wollenberg of Woodford Forest, the lucky winners.

All three came up with the same idea independently.

The three winners will all receive a gift voucher to spend at the bakery as well as their own cheesecake.

For every S’mores Cheesecake sold, COCO Bakery will make a donation to support the vital work of US Chesed which supports vulnerable members of the community.

The cheesecake is available to buy from COCO Bakery in Golders Green from Monday 10th May.

David said: “Thank you for voting for my S’mores cheesecake! Please can everyone buy it and have a lovely Shavuot!”

Natalie said: “It feels very encouraging to have won… I just hope the community will enjoy it and have a lovely Shavuot!”

Rebbetzen Wollenberg said: “It was so exciting to win the competition especially as I never win anything! I cannot wait to try the winning cheesecake.”

Congratulations to our winners and our thanks to everyone who submitted an idea. The United Synagogue wishes the whole community a Shavuot sameach,” added Richard Verber, the United Synagogue’s Communications Director.

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 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.
