Overview

"The history of Jewish journalism in the United States presents something of a challenge. Traditionally, historians like to recount the story of progress: development onward and upward from primitive origins to flourishing contemporary success. The history of Jewish journalism in the US, by contrast, represents, at least until recently, a story of marked decay."

--Dr. Jonathan Sarna, Brandeis University

"Jewish newspapers would be more compelling if Jewish readers wanted a more compelling paper. I can't tell you how many times over the years that I've heard readers say, 'I read your paper on Shabbat. I don't want to be disturbed. I just want to read nice Jewish news. I don't want things to make me angry.' That makes our role that much more difficult."

--Marc S. Klein, editor of j. the Jewish news weekly of Northern California
