The Jewish Herald-Voice is a weekly community newspaper serving the Jewish community of Texas' Gulf Coast. It is headquartered in Upper Kirby, Houston.[1][2] Established in 1908, it bills itself as the longest-running Jewish paper in the Southwest.[citation needed]

Known as the Herald, it is subscribed to by approximately 7,000 households, and claims a readership of more than 30,000.[dead link][3] The paper is owned by the Samuels family, also publishers, and is edited by Michael Duke.

In 2001, a group of volunteers from the Greater Houston Jewish Genealogical Society began indexing all "life-cycle information" — announcements of births, engagements, marriages, deaths, and burials — for use in historical and genealogical projects.[4] As of August, 2011, the index database included all events from the beginning of the paper's publication through June 2011.[5]
