 Entries continue to pour in for Jewish News’ search for the young leaders poised to shape the future of the community.

 Nominations continue to pour in for Jewish News’ search for the young leaders poised to shape the future of the community.

In partnership with the Jewish Leadership Council, this newspaper last month announced our third 40 under 40 project, with a panel of expert judges set to whittle down hundreds of nominations to the final list.

This time, nominations are also being sought simultaneously for 25 Under 25 and 18 Under 18 lists.

Previous winners, such as Liberal Democrat MP Luciana Berger, have migrated to the judging panel, and will help come up with the lists, set to be announced in the spring.

Joining Berger to judge next year’s ‘40 under 40’ list will be 23 senior figures representing the length and breadth of the community, including Liberal and Reform Judaism, Union of Jewish Students, JW3, Mizrachi UK, Reshet and The Fed in Manchester, to name a few.

Chair of judges Andrew Gilbert said: “Nominations for our lists have been coming in thick and fast in recent weeks, but there are some key names from past lists who have not yet been nominated.”

40 under 40

  • To qualify nominees have to be under 40 on 1 April 2020.

25 Under 25

  • To qualify nominees have to be under 25 on 1 April 2020.

18 Under 18

  • To qualify nominees have to be under 18 at 1 September 2019.

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.
