Support the JI

Please help keep the tradition alive!torch image rgb

For almost 85 years, the Jewish Independent, formerly the Jewish Western Bulletin, has been reporting on news, events and milestones that matter to the Jewish community in British Columbia.

Each week we publish, we bring the community together and add to our collective historical record. We do this with very few staff and a small budget, consistently putting out a multiple-award-winning publication that takes great pride in promoting the achievements of its readers and contributors.

Become part of the JI team

In addition, or in lieu of, a subscription, you can become part of the JI team with a contribution of your choosing.



Why should you donate?

Your donation will allow us to keep producing an award-winning publication that is committed to building a vibrant, growing Jewish community by connecting members from across the religious and political spectrums – something no other organization can do. To continue this unique and important service, we need your help.

More stories, more lifecycle events, more arts and culture coverage, more local, national and international news all requires more resources. To give you more, we need your help.

The Jewish Independent has kept subscription rates low, even as postage and other costs have increased, and we are now available at more than 35 locations throughout the Lower Mainland – for free. To remain affordable and accessible to all members of the community, we need your help.

The Independent has a long history of supporting and promoting the careers of young authors, journalists, photographers, artists and academics in our community. We have featured and nurtured young talent, and continue to see our writers attain success, becoming contributors to such prestigious publications as the Jewish Daily Forward and the Jerusalem Post. To ensure the future of high-quality Jewish journalism, we need your help.

The Jewish Independent and its predecessor comprise a vital part of the community’s archive, providing the only consistent – and the most comprehensive – record of the community since 1930. For today’s news to become tomorrow’s documented history, we need your help.

Please note that we are not able to issue tax receipts, and that all subscriptions and contributions are processed in Canadian dollars. If you have any questions or wish to contribute to the future of the Jewish Independent in other ways or amounts, please contact publisher Cynthia Ramsay at 604-689-1520 or cramsay@jewishindependent.ca.

If you’d prefer to send us your donation by mail rather than via PayPal or phoning the Jewish Independent office, please make your cheque payable to Jewish Independent, and send to:

Cynthia Ramsay, publisher
Jewish Independent
PO Box 47100 RPO City Square, Vancouver, B.C. V5Z 4L6

If you have any problems with how your contribution has been processed, please do not hesitate to be in touch with us.
