Essex Jewish News editor retires

    Manny Robinson, a former Evening Standard journalist and Jewish Chronicle columnist, has retired as editor of the community newspaper in Redbridge, the Essex Jewish News, after 40 years.

    Mr Robinson set up the original community newspaper, The Bridge, with the late publisher Frank Cass of Valentine Mitchell in 1972. It was then a 12-page glossy magazine; but he changed the format to that of a tabloid newspaper.

    In 1982, after requests from Jewish communities in Chelmsford, Harlow, Southend and other areas in Essex for their news items to be included in the paper, Mr Robinson changed the title to Essex Jewish News. He also helped to oversee the introduction of colour pages.

    The newspaper was inserted in the Jewish Chronicle for many years. No new editor has yet been appointed.
