The influence of technology on the Jewish community in London has been immense. From the introduction of fried fish to Britain by Jewish refugees in the 16th century to the current pandemic and its lockdowns, technology has had a profound effect on Jewish life and practices across the United Kingdom. A recent study by the Institute for Jewish Policy Research revealed that online education was preferred over online prayer services, as people were more likely to participate in online Jewish educational programs or conferences (42%) than in online Jewish prayer services (28%).Jewish News provides free high-quality content both online and offline, eliminating any financial barriers that prevent people from connecting. This has made it the main source of news and opinion for the Jewish community in the United Kingdom.
In addition, easy access to the newspaper on the streets of London also means that Jewish News offers a valuable window into the community for the country at large. The survey also asked respondents if they considered that Israel cares about the opinions of Jews who don't live in Israel on the issue of their government and policies. Despite this level of concern, most believe that leaders of the Jewish community should meet with Israeli politicians considered to be of the extreme right, 58%, compared to 26% who believe they should not.

In an era when news is easily accessible, Jewish News takes every opportunity to celebrate children through projects such as Night of Heroes, 40 Under 40 and other attractive countdowns that make the community proud. In addition, it is also involved in interreligious understanding through its first collaboration with media of different religions, working with British Muslim television and the Church Times to draw up a list of young activists who are leading the way. When asked whether or not it is acceptable for Jews who do not live in Israel to publicly express their concern about Israel's government and policies, 77% considered it acceptable.
