TRI­CY­CLE CASH

NOT WHAT THEY WANT

The Jewish Chronicle - - FRONT PAGE - STEPHEN POL­LARD

FOR A num­ber of years the JC has car­ried a small weekly ad­vert from the Tri­cy­cle Theatre. Given the theatre’s de­mand that the UK Jewish Film Fes­ti­val sever its ties to Is­rael, we could sim­ply have sev­ered our own ties to the Tri­cy­cle.

But we pre­fer to be imag­i­na­tive. From this week, the JC will be do­nat­ing all the rev­enue we re­ceive from the Tri­cy­cle to the Friends of Is­rael Ini­tia­tive, set up “to counter the grow­ing ef­forts to dele­git­imise the state of Is­rael and its right to live in peace within safe and de­fen­si­ble bor­ders”.

The Tri­cy­cle’s board will no doubt be de­lighted to know that its money will now be go­ing, weekly via the JC, to sup­port that im­por­tant ob­jec­tive.
