Part of the American Jewish Year Book book series (AJYB, volume 118)


This chapter provides lists with contact information (name, address, phone number, website) for almost 150 national Jewish periodicals and broadcast media and close to 200 local Jewish periodicals.

The purpose of this chapter is to document the Jewish media of the North American Jewish community and to preserve this information for historical purposes. We expect that historians 100 years from now will look back at the Year Book in researching the history of North American Jewry. In a sense, we are “freezing” the information in time. The information on the Internet, of course, changes as frequently as the webmasters update that information, meaning that without this freezing, historians in the future will not have a record of the media of the community.

Each list is carefully updated each year, but the authors appreciate any corrections noted by our readers.
