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.

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.”
