The Jewish Week is a weekly independent community newspaper targeted towards the Jewish community of the metropolitan New York City area.[2] The Jewish Week covers news relating to the Jewish community in NYC. In March 2016, The Jewish Week announced its partnership with the online newspaper The Times of Israel.[3] Later in 2016, The Jewish Week acquired the New Jersey Jewish News.[4]

Editorial staff[edit]

Gary Rosenblatt was the editor and publisher from 1993 to 2019.[5] Andrew Silow-Carroll will be taking over at the end of September. Rosenblatt will serve as editor at large and continue to write for the paper and be involved in several of its educational projects.[6]


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]
