Abe Lubelsky, head of operations at The Whisky World told Jewish News: “We couldn’t be happier with this year’s event. Doubling the size of the show has required a huge amount of work, but our fantastic exhibitors believed in us and we’re thrilled to have delivered a show which surpassed all expectations. Feedback has been phenomenal, and we’re already inundated with requests for next year!”

The Whisky Event will return in 2025.

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.
