Video: The changing face of Jewish media

Television news channel visited the Jewish News as part of a special report on the role of print and digital media in the lives of the UK Jewish community.

Editor Richard Ferrer and web editor Ivar Macsween discussed our recent website launch and newspaper redesign, alongside other journalists and authors featured in this video report.

How has your experience of Jewish media changed over the last few years? Do you find yourself reading from a wider selection of Jewish media titles or do you still rely on the same sources? Leave your comments below!

And look out for our new reader experience survey launching in the Jewish News and on in the coming weeks.

Richard Ferrer, Jewish News Editor:
“A key role for any Jewish newspaper is to retain a strong sense of community – giving people a sense of ownership and identity. The important thing for me is that we capture the interest and loyalty of every Jewish reader. Jewish readers that go to synagogue every day and every week; the ones that only keep Shabbat or Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur and, perhaps most importantly of all, the ones that have no contact with the community other than when they read the Jewish News.”
