The young leaders shaping Anglo-Jewry were honoured this week at a reception celebrating the Jewish News’ Thirty Under 30 and Eighteen Under 18 lists.

The initiative, in partnership with the Jewish Leadership Council (JLC), celebrated rising stars from across the community as well as figures making waves in the wider world of politics, media and the arts.

Number one on the 30 Under list, Arieh Miller, was presented with a trophy at JW3 in front of many of those on the two lists and members of the judging panel for the project, which culminated with the publication of profiles of all those featured earlier this year.

Addressing the gathering, JLC chief executive Simon Johnson said it was fitting to hold the event  during Chanukah, which celebrates the Maccabees taking the initiative to fight back against the Greeks to preserve Jewish life.

“Our 48 leaders did not have to fight to make a difference. But, in their own way, they have seized the initiative and stepped forward to help maintain a vibrant and vital Jewish life in the UK.

“Whether through choosing to work in the community, or volunteering or serving in a lay capacity, you are all showing the vision, the drive, the determination and the commitment, which has the potential to benefit our community for many years to come.”

As with the newspaper’s Forty Under 40 and Aliyah countdowns, the project was chaired by Andrew Gilbert, who said: “While lists are fun, they also tell a story and each one is special. For many people appearing, it was the first time they have been recognised by the Jewish community and I’m sure it won’t be the last.”

This week’s front page, honouring our young leaders!

Laura Janner-Klausner, Senior Rabbi to Reform Judaism, praised the impact of Jewish News and spoke about leadership.

Jewish News’ Thirty Under 30 points to a bright future for Jews in Britain. Diverse, driven and dedicated, all those included are a credit to our community.”

Trainee rabbi Deborah Blausten, who also features prominently on the list, lit the candles for the seventh night of Chanukah.

Justin Cohen, news editor of Jewish News, said: “It was fitting to hold this celebration at JW3, which seeks to increase the volume and quality of conversation in the Jewish community.

“All those on these lists do just that, and we are delighted to have this opportunity to shine a light on their incredible efforts.”

 

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.
