The Jewish Chronicle - - News -

AS part of the Jewish Chron­i­cle’s com­mem­o­ra­tions of Is­rael’s 60th an­niver­sary, we gave read­ers a high-qual­ity, 100-page mag­a­zine with con­tri­bu­tions from, among oth­ers, Ehud Olmert, Elie Wiesel, Amos Oz, AB Ye­hoshua, Rafi Ei­tan, Et­gar Keret and Natan Sha­ran­sky. We also gave away a spe­cial com­mem­o­ra­tive sup­ple­ment which re­pro­duced pages from the JC as we re­ported the 1948 birth of Is­rael.

Th­ese are among the un­so­licited tes­ti­mo­ni­als re­ceived from se­nior fig­ures in the Is­raeli es­tab­lish­ment:

FROM THE OF­FICE OF THE PRIME MIN­IS­TER, on be­half of Ehud Olmert: “The Jewish Chron­i­cle has re­ported on the de­vel­op­ments and trends in the Jewish world for al­most 170 years, and has faith­fully detailed the his­tory of the State of Is­rael over its 60 years of ex­is­tence. We are cer­tain your re­cent mod­erni­sa­tion pro­gramme and the launch of your web­site will fur­ther ce­ment your suc­cess.”

FROM MIN­IS­TER OF HEALTH Yaakov Ben-Yizri: “I know the news­pa­per well and have a great deal of re­spect for its con­tri­bu­tion to the life and con­cerns of the UK Jewish com­mu­nity.”

FROM THE OF­FICE OF THE STATE COMP­TROL­LER, Micha Lin­den­strauss: “We be­lieve the Jewish Chron­i­cle is an im­por­tant pub­li­ca­tion that makes a sub­stan­tial con­tri­bu­tion to Jewish jour­nal­ism.”

FROM THE MIN­IS­TER OF AGRI­CUL­TURE, Shalom Simhon: “The Jewish Chron­i­cle is a dis­tin­guished, ven­er­a­ble and unique jour­nal which ful­fils sev­eral im­por­tant func­tions, among them serv­ing as a bridge be­tween Is­rael and the di­as­pora, par­tic­u­larly the Bri­tish Jewish com­mu­nity.”

FROM JEWISH AGENCY FOR IS­RAEL chair­man Zeev Bielski: “I have been fol­low­ing the Jewish Chron­i­cle and in­deed no­tice the pos­i­tive changes you have in­tro­duced. I wish you suc­cess in launch­ing an in­ter­net site, which should serve as a meet­ing place for Jews around the world.”

FROM THE MIN­IS­TER OF NA­TIONAL IN­FRA­STRUC­TURES, Binyamin Ben-Eliezer: “The Jewish Chron­i­cle is a very pres­ti­gious pub­li­ca­tion which has con­trib­uted a lot to the forg­ing of the Jewish and Zion­ist iden­tity.”
