Ben Gabay (Faithfold A) – New to 11-a-aside, had a tough one last week but today was fantastic, made numerous stops to maintain the Superhoops lead

Stanley Offord (Brady Maccabi) – Showed his manager why he’s the best left-sided wing back in the league as he ran the Lions right-hand side ragged
Ben Cantopher (Scrabble) – Gave a perfect display alongside Tony Gold, not allowing anything to get past him
Martin Smulovitch (Real Hendon) – Gets better with age and forming a great partnership with Gilad Kestenbaum at the heart of the Hendon defence
Tony Gold (Scrabble) – Scrabble legend rolling back the years with a superb defensive display, was a rock at the heart of the action

Josh Cuby (Oakwood A) – Pacy winger claimed three assists in what was an impressive performance
James Frener (Oakwood B) – Having the most brilliant season. Pulled the strings in midfield and was vital for all goals. Just a brilliant performance
Ben Mandell (Straw Hat Pirates) – Captain gave a box-to-box performance, which included him scoring two goals
Avi Garson (Faithfold A) – Was up and down the right flank all game, Blancos simply couldn’t live with him

Adam Ellis (Bayern Mincha) – League’s top scorer helped himself to two more goals as side continued their title challenge
Zach Cohen (Mill Hill Dons) – Was a nuisance up-top from start to finish and his work across the front line was rewarded with yet another hat-trick

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.
