The Jewish Week is a weekly newspaper serving the Jewish community of the metropolitan New York City area.[2] The Jewish Week covers news relating to the Jewish community in NYC.

Editorial staff[edit]

Gary Rosenblatt has been the editor and publisher since 1993.


In 2016, The Jewish Week became a finalist for awards in two categories by the Deadline Club, the New York City chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists, for its series on the battle to improve secular education in chasidic schools. The series was done in partnership with WNYC.

In 2000, Rosenblatt and the newspaper won the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism from the Journalism Center on Children & Families for the story "Stolen Innocence", an investigative report that uncovered allegations of decades of child abuse by a youth movement leader and high school principal, Baruch Lanner. The story was criticized by some in the Orthodox community for being "malicious gossip".[2]
