AbstractCurrent surveys are underway to utilize gravitational lensing by galaxy clusters with Einstein radii > 35 arcsec in the search for the highest redshift galaxies. Associated supernovae from the epoch of reionization would have their fluxes boosted above the detection threshold, extending their duration of visibility. We predict that the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) will be able to discover lensed core-collapse supernovae at redshifts exceeding z = 7-8.
