The Jewish Tele­graph re­ports the story of South African pho­tog­ra­pher Joel Red­man, who has been se­lected for the Tay­lor Wess­ing Pho­to­graphic Por­trait Prize for his por­trait of Holo­caust sur­vivor Leon Green­man, who died in March. “Leon was an in­cred­i­ble man who had a heart­felt and sad story to tell,” Mr Red­man says. He ad­mits that he had not known a great deal about the Holo­caust un­til he read about Mr Green­man’s life.

A man be­lieved to be the old­est Jew in the world has died only four days af­ter turn­ing 108, the Jewish News re­ports. Ukrainian-born Boris Efi­mov, a car­i­ca­tur­ist who drew morale-lift­ing car­toons dur­ing World War II, died in Moscow. Mr Efi­mov was the artist be­hind many po­lit­i­cal car­toons satiris­ing Hitler and Nazi sym­pa­this­ers.

Hamodia writes about Tot­ten­ham MP David Lammy, who took time to meet mem­bers of the Charedi com­mu­nity of North Lon­don. Mr Lammy spoke about the new mar­riage and visa laws which the Home Of­fice is in­tend­ing to in­tro­duce in Novem­ber.

Un­der the new law, visas will no longer be is­sued to any­one un­der 21 from out­side the EU who is in­tend­ing to move to the UK as the spouse of a Bri­tish ci­ti­zen.

The leg­is­la­tion may have a se­ri­ous ef­fect on the Charedi com­mu­nity, many of whose young peo­ple marry peo­ple from Is­rael or the USA, Mr Lammy was told. There had been many rep­re­sen­ta­tions to the Home Of­fice about the pro­posed changes, said the re­port.
