Each week SJ editor Leslie Bunder looks at some of the stories that the print Jewish media are reporting by delving into their front pages, news sections and features.
The Jewish Chronicle reports that the Union of Orthodox Hebrew Congregations is under pressure over its grants to anti-Zionist group Neturei Karta. The head teacher of Simon Marks Primary in Stoke Newington, north London, Laurie Rosenberg said: "I have written to the Charity Commission to ask how Adath can protect and further in every area [traditional Judaism] by supporting this outrageous group that consorts with Israels enemies and which carried out the grossly offensive act of burning the Israeli flag outside the school."
The Jewish Chronicle writes that the family of Miriam Hyman who died in the July 7 bombings in central London have presented an art prize in her memory in collaboration with the Tricycle Theatre Young Artists Group.
The Jewish News reports that the Hyde Park Holocaust Memorial, Britains only national memorial dedicated to victims of the Holocaust held its first Yom Hashoah commemoration for more than a decade.
The Jewish News writes that The family of Jonny Fraser, a 21-year-old student who drowned last year while saving a swimmer in India have launched a scholarship fund to help young people from the developing world to study at Jerusalems Hebrew University.
