Jewish Press

“I took over this project in September 2015 and established regular contacts with the Jewish Newspapers the objective being to promote SWHC. Over 600 news information releases and feature articles about the Community news have been published across the Jewish Newspapers sector, notably The Jewish Chronicle, Jewish weekly, Jewish Tribune, Hamodia, Jewish Weekly and the Essex Jewish News. If you have any community news or would like to highlight you event, function or activity, I shall be delighted to send it to the newspapers. They do not always print but they do in the majority of cases.”
