On Sunday 16th June, a team of eight are cycling from London to Paris in aid of the 9,000 Jewish students across the UK and Ireland.

Embarking on the fundraising challenge are Union of Jewish Students (UJS) President Edward Isaacs, Chair of Trustees Daniel Dangoor and six other friends of UJS, Adam Joseph, Adam Wilkinson-Hill, Brent Mallows, Harvey Kaye, Manu Mazzoni & Oli Gee.

Daniel Dangoor, UJS Chair of Trustees: “Jewish students have shown tremendous resilience in the face of a tough year on campus. Out of solidarity, we’re challenging ourselves to ride from London to Paris in a day to raise money to continue the amazing work UJS is doing to support them. Jewish students must be allowed to thrive in their studies so please support us generously in this challenge.”

Edward Isaacs, UJS President: “I’m looking forward to joining Daniel and others on this trip to Paris. I’m very proud to be raising funds to support Jewish students on campus as my time at UJS comes to an end.”

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.
