Publisher Avi Frier founded the paper in May 2005 as a free biweekly publication; the paper began publishing weekly in October 2005 and closed in October 2007.

The Florida Jewish News was a member of the American Jewish Press Association (AJPA). Publisher Avi Frier was a member of the Society of Professional Journalists (SPJ).

After closing the newspaper, publisher Avi Frier went back to his previous career as a corporate entertainer and comedy magician.
