Nathan Jeffay

Nathan Jeffay wrote his first article for the Jewish Chronicle in July 1998, and has been published in almost every edition of the newspaper since then. He used to report from the UK, and since 2007 has mostly been writing from Israel — for the JC and various other publications in Britain, America and Australia. He covers a broad range of subjects from politics and the frictions of the Middle East to Israeli high-tech, culture, religious affairs and humanitarian work. As well as writing, Nathan lectures to lots of groups that visit Israel, and to Jewish and Christian communities internationally. He has degrees from the University of Cambridge and the University of Leeds and is a married father of four children, one of them through fostering.
