f Asael Lubotzky were a doctor in the UK, heads would turn when he entered a hospital. Handsome, confident and with a ready smile, he is the sort of man who attracts attention, but it is the specially modified crutches on which he leans that would set him apart. Sadly this is not the case in Israel, where the sight of a young man with battle scars is all too commonplace and where Lubotzky, the senior resident in pediatric medicine at Jerusalem’s iconic Shaare Zedek hospital, inhabits two worlds, as that of healer and of the walking wounded. If people stare at Lubotsky in the hospital, it is not because they are fascinated by his crutches with torches on the handles and suction pads on the base, but because they recognise him as the young doctor who has become something of a celebrity since publishing a memoir that turned into a local bestseller.

His book, From the Wilderness and Lebanon, is about his experience of battling the Shiite militia Hezbollah in Lebanon where, in 2006 at the age of 23, he was a lieu lieutenant in the Golani brigade commanding a platoon of 30 soldiers.

Lubotzky was almost killed when a missile registered a direct hit on the spot on which he was standing in the tank. He survived with extensive wounds and with one leg so badly mangled his doctors were close to amputating it. Lubotzky’s circumstances are extraordinary by any standard, but at Shaare Zedek, which in English means Gates of Justice, they have been treating the war wounded for almost 115 years and the hospital permeates with stories like his that beggar belief.

OCCASION!

A MOMENTOUS WEEK

journey of one thousand issues begins with a single step. On 16 January 1997, the first edition of London Jewish News hit the streets with the front page headline ‘Queen Pays Tribute To Special Sue’. It told the story of charity worker Sue Burns, who was invited to meet Her Majesty at Buckingham Palace. I recall glancing over issue number one at my parents’ house on a Friday night. At the time, I was a journalist for publishers Emap Metro, writing for lads’ magazine FHM and a short-lived men’s health title. I considered it my dream job until I truly found it 12 years later – in the editor’s chair at the very same newspaper. My first issue, number 579 in October 2009, was dominated by news of former BNP goon Nick Griffin’s appearance on BBC1’s Question Time. I hope the 421 editions I’ve since overseen reflect the pride I feel to have been given such a rewarding role. Although affectionately still known by many as LJN, the newspaper dropped the ‘L’ back in 2004, to reflect the emphasis on national and world news across its pages. It’s not just the acronymn that’s changed. The newspaper has flourished in an era of free media content, riding the wave of success that’s seen the likes of Metro and the Evening Standard commercially and editorially thrive without the barrier of a cover price. Jewish News is ABC audited as by far the largest distributed Jewish publication in the country with 25,000 copies (and rising fast) across London every week. Our website is read by more than 400,000 people every month (and rising even faster) thanks in part to an exclusive UK digital partnership with The Times of Israel, the world’s biggest Jewish portal. Look out in the coming months for a glossy online overhaul. The impact of Jewish News has grown in the corridors of power, with David Cameron granting the newspaper his only Jewish interview as PM before the 2015 General Election campaign. The newspaper also

secured the Archbishop of Canterbury’s only interview with the Jewish media. Stories in our pages are picked up by the national media, including in a recent piece by the Daily Mail which hailed us as Britain’s “most popular Jewish paper”. We have established a stable of must-read columnists, including leading counter-extremist Maajid Nawaz, LBC’s Nick Ferrari, Jenni Frazer, Brendan O’Neill, Alex Brummer and Samantha Simmonds. We’ve also hosted a range of political Q&A events with key public figures, including Jeremy Corbyn, Boris Johnson, Ed Miliband and Nick Clegg, and organised two UK-Israel conferences in Parliament with BICOM, bringing together leading politicians,

embassy officials, think tank leaders and journalists from both countries to enhance bilateral dialogue. The appearance of Home Secretary Amber Rudd at the last such event in November 2016 was covered by Sky News. But Jewish News remains at its heart a community newspaper – and loudly and proudly so. This means more than simply reporting the news. We have teamed up with all the leading communal groups to media partner on the biggest events in the Jewish calendar, organised wedding and barmitzvah exhibitions, twice taken over Wembley Stadium for the Jewish Living Expo and celebrated unsung heroes in our Community Hero Award and Jewish Schools Awards. And few projects in the newspaper’s history have generated as much excitement as our Forty Under 40, Twenty-Five Under 25 and Eighteen Under 18 lists to identify those shaping the community’s future.

We are also a campaigning newspaper. Our petition for the Royal Mail to release a stamp honouring Holocaust hero Sir Nicholas Winton garnered 106,000 signatures worldwide and, within eight months, inspired the national release of stamps honouring outstanding Brits – including the great man who saved 669 Jewish children from the Holocaust. Before leaving you to enjoy this special souvenir magazine, thanks are due to colleagues and predecessors who have ensured this newspaper’s continued success. Past editors Stuart Brodkin, David Garfinkel and Zeddy Lawrence. Former journalists Sharon Jaffa, Alex Sholem, Jeremy Last, Jonathan Goddard, Joe Millis, Marc Shoffman, James Kaye, Lauren Krotosky, Chloe Markowitz, Kari Rosenberg, James Martin, Erica Morris and Sophie Eastaugh. Former sales supremos Russell Bahar, Dan Assor and Mark Hilton. Production superstars Sarah Rothberg, Jodie Goldfinger, Jonny Aziz, Richard Herman, Kim Copitch, Leigh Kawitzky, Marc Silver and our current production editor, the unflappably fabulous Diane Spender. The current editorial team: foreign editor Stephen Oryszczuk, features editor Francine Wolfisz, online editor Jack Mendel, sports and community editor Andrew Sherwood, supplements editor Brigit Grant, sub editors Alex Galbinski and Richard Cawthorne and the newspaper’s longest-serving member of staff and the man who truly puts the ‘news’ in Jewish News – the incomparable Justin Cohen. Plus far too many talented freelancers to mention by name. I’d also like to pay tribute to our board, comprised of the leading lights of Anglo-Jewry, for providing the expertise and inspiration to drive the business forward. Finally, thanks to you. For reading the Jewish News in print and online. For attending our events. For writing and phoning, praising and moaning, cheering and groaning. Thanks for making Jewish News part of your Jewish week for the last 1,000 weeks. It’s been grand!

THE PRIME MINISTER

I would like to send my warmest wishes to the Jewish News and all its readers as the paper marks its one thousandth edition this week. For twenty years the Jewish News has been reporting on national and international events, entertaining its readers, holding those in authority to account and representing the community. I want Jewish News readers to know that this Government will continue to work for Jewish people at home and abroad, from our funding for security measures at Jewish schools, synagogues and community centres to supporting deals such as the UK’s largest ever export deal to Israel between Rolls Royce and EL AL. We are also establishing a national Memorial to the Holocaust, together with an accompanying education centre, next to Parliament at the heart of our democracy. For in remembering the Holocaust, we will also reaffirm our national commitment to fighting hatred and prejudice in all its forms in the world today. This one thousandth edition is an impressive milestone and testament to the hard work of everyone in the Jewish News team. I would like to wish everyone at the paper the very best for its future success.

  A  message  from  the  Mayor  of  London,  Sadiq  Khan,  to  mark  1,000   issues  of  Jewish  News       Since  I  was  elected  last  May,  I  have  been  hugely  grateful  for  the  warmth  and  best   wishes  extended  to  me  by  the  Jewish  community.       From  attending  Yom  HaShoah  as  my  first  official  engagement  after  being  elected   Mayor,  and  breaking  my  fast  during  Ramadan  at  an  event  hosted  by  the  Finchley   Reform  Synagogue,  to  marking  the  80th  anniversary  of  the  Battle  of  Cable  Street   alongside  the  Jewish  community,  and  celebrating  Chanukah  here  in  City  Hall,   there  are  many  memories  I  will  always  cherish.         The  enormous  contribution  the  Jewish  community  makes  to  our  city  is  a  shining   example  of  London  at  its  best,  and  shows  what  can  be  achieved  when  London  is   open  –  open  to  all  cultures  and  open  to  people  from  all  backgrounds.         For  the  past  two  decades,  Jewish  News  has  championed  this  message  and  the   community’s  incredible  achievements.         As  Britain’s  biggest  Jewish  newspaper,  it  has  been  instrumental  in  shining  a  light   on  issues  that  affect  the  community  across  the  country  and  holding  people  like   me  to  account.    It  also  continues  to  provide  an  invaluable  voice  for  London’s   Jewish  community,  highlighting  important  issues  like  the  unacceptable  rise  in   anti-­‐Semitism,  which  I  am  determined  to  stamp  out  across  our  city.         The  paper  has  really  helped  to  build  stronger  communities  and  make  London     a  more  welcoming  place  to  live,  work  and  visit.       My  warmest  congratulations  to  all  of  those  behind  Jewish  News  on  their     1,000th  issue.         Here’s  to  thousands  more  over  many  decades.       Sadiq  Khan   Mayor  of  London

1,000 MAZELTOVS!

Message from the Chief Rabbi in honour of the 1000th issue of the Jewish News I am delighted to send my very best wishes to the Jewish News as you mark your 1000th issue. This is a tremendous milestone for what has become a significant institution of our community. I often think of the Jewish News as being a newspaper for the community, rather than about the community. Over the last twenty years it has found a whole host of creative ways to celebrate all that is good about Jewish life here in the UK, from its Jewish Living Expo to its UK Israel Conferences or its Jewish Teachers Awards. I often talk about the different terms that the Torah uses for a community - one is an ‘edah’ and the other, a ‘kehilla’. An edah is a group of people who have come together at a particular time and place for a specific purpose. Their association is functional rather than consequential – indeed, they may never see each other again. But a kehilla is very different. When individuals are part of a Kehilla, they share a set of values and they empower each other to achieve far more than they could ever have achieved alone.

Company Limited by Guarantee Company Number: 07431950 Registered Charity No: 1139806

The Jewish News is a newspaper that is dedicated to serving our ‘kehilla’ and which, indeed, has become a part of it. You provide a forum for sincere debate, while also championing good causes and celebrating all that is good about our community. May you be blessed to continue to go mechayil el chayil, from strength to strength for many more years to come.

These pages represent the amazing breadth and diversity of our community. Over 1000 editions, the Jewish News has empowered those without a voice to share brilliant thoughts that may otherwise not have been heard at all. The Jewish media is an often unsung pillar of our community. The vital role played by the Jewish News in sharing information across our community is a tremendous service to us all. I want to send my congratulations to the Jewish News on reaching such a significant milestone, your 1000th edition. The Jewish News has innovated and created new spaces for different people to be heard. The Progressive page gives different denominations equal platforms and I am always fascinated by what our rabbinic leaders, lay leaders and young leaders have been able to contribute. The Interfaith section is a unique contribution, giving prominence to an area of our communal life that has gained increased importance in recent years. Over 1000 editions, more than anything, the Jewish News has always been a total pleasure to work with. May the next 1000 editions continue to empower and embolden as diverse an array of voices from within our community as possible, and continue to shine a light on all of our collective successes.

1997 LONDON JEWISH NEWS burst on to the scene on 16 January 1997 as a fortnightly paper. And, fittingly, for a newspaper that has always prided itself on its communal roots, our very first front page ‘splash’ was not about politics, personalities London or scandals.

Protests Pupils’ prayers are answered as friend returns to school as Carmel College is closed CARMEL College, the Jewish boarding school founded in 1948 by Rabbi Kopul Rosen, is to close in July. Pupils and their parents discovered the shock news over the weekend when they received a letter from headmaster Philip Skelker sent out last Friday. A public protest meeting will be held at Yakar, the north west London study centre founded in memory of Rabbi Rosen, on Sunday morning. It is understood that Mr Cyril Stein, chairman of the Carmel College governors, concluded an agreement last Tuesday to sell the extensive buildings and land owned by the school in Wallingford, Oxfordshire. The school, which currently has 200 pupils on its roll, has been experiencing financial difficulties for some years. Parents’ dismay at the closure has been compounded by the timing, with pupils facing difficulties finding places for next year.

Family’s fears for Shine pianist David

THE FAMILY of Sh in e pianist David Helfgott, who appears in a sell-out concert at London’s Royal Festival Hall on Monday week, fear for his health. David’s brother Leslie told Lon don Jew ish New s in a world exclusive interview from his home in Australia: “A lot of people are making a lot of money out of a sick man. I think that he is going backwards and I am gravely concerned.” The Oscar-winning movie tells the story of David’s severe mental illness and his subsequent triumphant return to the concert stage. • Full story pages 12-13

THE smile on the face of brave teenager Ali Rhodes says it all: “It’s great to be alive.” The plucky 15-year-old JFS schoolgirl has won a two-year battle against a double brain tumour which nearly killed her. In an exclusive interview with Lo n d o n Je w ish Ne w s, Ali revealed: “I couldn’t have done it without my friends and everyone at JFS. They were just there for me when I needed them. They made me feel that I wasn’t alone.” Now Ali, who lives in Kenton with her parents Martin and Sharon and her older sisters Sorcha and Charlotte, is determined to help other children facing similar problems. She has already raised more than £1,000 for the Great Ormond Street Children’s Hospital where surgeons battled to save her life. Ali was rushed to the hospital two years ago after doctors discovered a double tumour on her brain. Her amazing recovery has come after a traumatic series of nine operations to remove the tumours. “I can’t believe it but I survived and it’s great to be back at school with all my friends,” she told LJN. Ali recalled how her nightmare began when she was just 13. “I was having bad headaches,” she said. “They gradually got worse. I told my

dad, who’s a doctor, but you never think that anything like that can happen to your own daughter. “While we were on holiday in Israel the headaches continued and when I got home, I had a brain scan. Dad broke the news to me the same day. I was shocked. I didn’t actually know how to feel.” Ali was rushed to Great Ormond Street where she underwent two operations. The first was to remove one of the tumours. In the second, doctors inserted a special tube called a shunt inside her head to drain fluid from the other tumour. The operation seemed to be successful, but six months later Ali was whisked back into hospital, gravely ill. The tube had become blocked and doctors feared she might slip into a coma. The operation was inconclusive and there were more blockages during the next year as Ali was submitted to the same dangerous operation over and over again. “When I had to go for my second operation I felt really angry,” said Ali. “I kept wondering, why is this happening to me? I was shouting at everyone because I was in very bad pain

from the shunt. By the third time I thought, right, I’ve just got to get on with my life. The experience of the operations made me feel less religious. After number three, I decided I wanted to become more religious.” While Ali battled for her life, pupils at JFS held special services every day where they recited prayers for her recovery. JFS director of informal Jewish education Gavin Ucko explained: “Hundreds and hundreds of people came to lunchtime te h illim . You could barely breathe, the shul was so packed. “Sometimes it takes something negative like this to pull everyone together. Obviously, nobody wanted Ali to be ill but it caused an unbelievable spirit in the school,” said Mr Ucko. “Everybody was united in praying for her. People who would never think at all about coming in to the shul were there on a regular basis. There was a real unity, battling for Ali to get better, and thank goodness, she did.” Ali told LJN how much her friends’ concern meant to her. “I had so much support from JFS and also my community in Kenton. They were there for me,” she said. Now the brave schoolgirl is getting on with her life. Apart from occasional tiredness and a bracelet on her wrist describ-

On the Saturday of her funeral, a special prayer for Diana, composed by the Chief Rabbi, was read out in synagogues across the country.

Tributes to Chief Rabbi

Thousands attended a prefuneral service in October after the death of former Chief Rabbi Lord Immanuel Jakobovits, 78. Politicians and community leaders joined tributes before his burial on Jerusalem’s Mount of Olives. His successor, Rabbi Jonathan Sacks, described him as “the outstanding rabbinic figure of his generation”.

A YEAR THAT BEGAN WITH LONDON JEWISH NEWS going weekly ended with this paper playing a key role in desperate efforts to save a 10-year-old girl suffering from cystic fibrosis. After Lisa Ostrovsky’s father sent out a global email appealing for help, we urged potential lung donors to come forward – and one of our nonJewish readers was so touched he did just that. Believed to be the first time a lung transplant had been carried out in the US where a living donor was not related to the recipient, the story captivated the British media. “There is a Jewish saying: ‘If you can save one life you can save the world’”, donor Ron Johnson said at the time.

9 Rabbi controversy

In a highly controversial article in The Sunday Times, Mill Hill United’s Rabbi Yitzchak Schochet pointed out that the Jewish people already had Yom HaShoah, which, he claimed, often passed by without the attention it deserved.

Reservations over HMD

Whitehall is urged to take action By JAMES KAYE

SENIOR Jewish leaders have called on the government to take action to halt the spread of anti-Semitic violence following the racially motivated attack on an Orthodox man in Stamford Hill. Israeli Ambassador Dror Zeigerman said: “When religious extremists in this country are allowed freely to call for Muslims to kill Jews and Israelis, then something is very wrong. The stabbing is a shocking crime which will no doubt be punished but it is also a warning to the British government and responsible people from all walks of life that steps must be taken to prevent the excesses of Islamic hatred towards Jews and Israelis from contaminating this society.” Scotland Yard have agreed to strengthen security around possible Jewish and Israeli targets. A spokesman at the Israel Embassy said: “Various Muslim groups have held demonstrations near the embassy in the past week during which angry chants of “Death to the Israelis” and “Death to the Jews” have been the norm. At one of those demonstrations rocks were thrown at police.” The Chief Rabbi Professor Dr Jonathan Sacks said he was “seriously distressed at the number of incidents”and said he would welcome “any statement by leadership of the Muslim community that both dissociates themselves from this and tries to control it where possible. We have to get back to the good relations that have genuinely grown up in the last few years.” Board of Deputies’ president Jo Wagerman has also written to the Attorney-General, Lord Williams of Mostyn, calling for action against the distributors of racist and highly inflammatory leaflets in London and other major UK cities. The CST said: “People in the Stamford Hill area are really panicky at the moment.”

SHOCK OVER STAB ATTACK SPECIAL REPORT By JONATHAN GODDARD

A TWENTY-YEAR-OLD yeshivah student was stabbed more than 20 times in an unprovoked attack in Stamford Hill on Monday morning. David Myers was on the topdeck of a number 253 bus on his way to see a friend when the attacker struck. Myers, who was wearing traditional Orthodox clothing and was reading from a

Hebrew text, received knife injuries to his face, neck, chest, legs and arms. His arm was also broken as he tried to defend himself. The bus driver and other passengers, including a group of schoolchildren, leapt from the bus after the attacker had run down the stairs and threatened the driver. The man was trapped on the

bus after the doors were locked from the outside by the driver, who ran into Grodzinski’s bakery to alert the police. Eye witnesses said that the attacker then forced open the door and walked casually away from the scene of the incident, pocketing the blade. The man then boarded another bus and after a passenger

alerted police, he was arrested near Seven Sisters underground station. Myers, who is studying at Gateshead Yeshivah, was given first-aid at the scene by Volvy Kupferstein, an employee of Grodzinski’s. Kupferstein said: “It looked like the victim was travelling alone. After the stabbing I went up the stairs of the bus, I did what I could to help him. He was in a very bad way with blood all over the place.” An ambulance, waiting at a nearby junction, drove up to the scene, which allowed the victim to be treated quickly. Myers underwent emergency surgery at Homerton Hospital in Hackney. He is in intensive care where his condition is described as serious but stable. He may require further surgery. Myers’ parents, Liliane and Elie, are keeping a bedside vigil and are refusing to comment on the attack. Myers, who lives in Finchley, had returned to London for Succot and was on his way to visit a friend, Jacob Benouaith.

Benouaith said: “Everyone who knows David knows that he is a boy who never gets into fights. He has a very strong build, but is never aggressive.” A lecturer at Gateshead Yeshivah described Myers as “a quiet and studious boy”. A spokesman for Shoreditch Police said: “It appears that the attack was unprovoked.” The day after the stabbing, Zeigerman met with Home Office Minister Charles Clarke and police officials to discuss the attack. On Wednesday, Myers received a private visit in hospital from Israeli Ambassador Dror Zeigerman and the Mayor of Hackney Joe Lobenstein. Stephen Twigg MP has also written to Jack Straw asking for an urgent meeting between the Home Secretary and the Labour Friends of Israel, of which Twigg is the chairman. Lobenstein said: “My information is that the attacker was making anti-Semitic remarks. In the context of the situation in the Middle East, people are concerned. continued on page 3

‘APOCALYPSE’, SCREAMED THE HEADLINE of a British national newspaper the day after the most devastating terrorist assault the world had known. That September morning changed the world, leaving almost 3,000 people dead on the day itself and spurring an international war on terror seemingly set to continue for many years to come. In Israel, one of many countries that lost citizens in the Twin Towers attack, flags on government buildings were lowered to half mast, while images of Palestinians rejoicing in the streets were chilling evidence of antiAmerican sentiment in the region. A tape was later released of Al-Qaeda head Osama bin Laden pointing the finger of blame at Israel. “Terrorism against America deserves to be praised,” he said, “because it was a response to injustice, aimed at forcing America to stop its support for Israel, which kills our people.”

In April, two British suicide bombers targeted Tel Aviv’s popular Mike’s Place bar. Asif Hanif, 21, killed three people and injured more than 50 others. The body of fellow attacker Omar Khan Sharif, 27, was discovered days later.

London THE YEAR BEGAN WITH ISRAEL preparing to be the unwitting victim of another international war against Iraq. Twelve years after scuds rained down on the state during the first Gulf War, gas masks were once again distributed and rooms sealed amid fears that Saddam Hussein could this time opt to use chemical or biological weapons. In the end, however, unlike in 1991, Israel was not targeted. But the intifada continued. A three-month ceasefire was undermined by attacks against innocent Israelis and the murder of 20 people on a bus led to questions about whether the roadmap to peace was at an end – only three months after being accepted by the cabinet, the first time an Israeli government had formally backed the creation of an independent Palestinian state.

ON THE DOMESTIC SCENE, 2007 saw a concerted campaign against Israel by a number of British trade unions. In the space of just six weeks, Unison, the Transport and General Workers’ Union and the University and College Union all passed hostile motions supporting boycotts of the country. The community at home and abroad fought back with a campaign that included adverts in national newspapers. Both the British and Israeli governments roundly condemned boycotts but it wasn’t enough to prevent some Israeli politicians backing a proposal to begin labelling all British imports, so its citizens could avoid purchasing them.

Britain’s new prime minister and his deputy stand side by side on the steps of Downing Street, after forging an historic agreement based on a “new kind of politics”. But with a coalition requiring compromise on all sides, we trust David Cameron’s strong support for Israel will not be diluted by his new best friend.

Galliano in trouble

The Dior fashion house dumped designer John Galliano after he was caught on film in an abusive anti-Semitic rant in a bar. His lawyer argued the “public outbursts“ were the result of “work-related stress and multiple addictions”. Galliano was found guilty of ‘public insults’ and fined €66,000.

The year 2011 opened with a suggestion that impresario Simon Cowell (right) was to be a Middle East peacemaker. However well-intentioned this idea was, nothing came of it. In October, after 1,941 days of captivity, Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit was freed by Hamas in a controversial prisoner exchange. There were celebrations in Israel and the diaspora, and at Jewish News, which had campaigned for his release. Chief Rabbi Lord Jonathan Sacks came out in favour of organ donation, saying it did not contravene halacha. Jewish Congresswoman Gabby Giffords was shot and seriously injured in an assassination attempt as she met constituents in Tucson, Arizona. Six people were killed in the attack and 13 wounded. Former London mayor Ken Livingstone published his memoirs, laying bare his many clashes with the Jewish community.
