THE JEWISH PRESS
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.
