The Edinburgh Star
Cover of 50th edition of The Edinburgh Star
The Edinburgh Star is the publication of the Edinburgh Jewish Community, first published in March 1989, originally twice yearly now yearly before Rosh Hashanah.
It is run by the Editor and an Editorial Board of community members. It is funded entirely by donations and advertising and is distributed to members and also to a much wider public, including subscribers as far afield as Israel, Australia and Canada.
The Star aims to strike a balance between community news and matters of more general interest. It has in the past included feature articles on Eastern Europe, Israel, war crimes, as well as book and theatre reviews, and of course, reflections on the Jewish Festivals. It also includes a diary of events and reports from all the communal organisations.
The Star is a valuable source of information on the Jewish Community in Edinburgh. It is independent of EHC and while the Star could not survive without the support of EHC and its members, it also attempts to reflect the full range of organisations and activities of Jewish interest in Edinburgh.
If you would like to receive a copy of the Star then we will be delighted to send you one in return for a small donation. Contact The Edinburgh Star.
The Edinburgh Star now has every issue on its website with a search facility to locate people and events.
