Nearly 500 episodes. Nearly 10,000 hours of programming. It’s “what Jewish Canada sounds like.” For more than two and a half years, Ellin Bessner and The CJN Daily podcast have been bringing the voices and sounds of Canadian Jewish newsmakers to listeners from coast to coast—and around the world.

And since Oct. 7, it’s never been more important to provide you with authoritative, trustworthy, accurate and balanced reporting on the Israel-Hamas conflict, including updates on the hostage situation, the massacre of 1,200 Israeli residents and a new wave of antisemitism within Canada and beyond. It’s coverage you won’t find anywhere else.

That’s why, on #GivingTuesday, Ellin wants to get personal. In this episode, you’ll hear why she and the rest of The CJN team need your financial support to keep producing award-winning journalism that’s unique in Canada.
