j. the Jewish news weekly background information

j. the Jewish news weekly of Northern California dates its history to Nov. 22, 1895 when San Francisco’s first Jewish newspaper debuted as the Emanu-El. Over the years, then Emanu-El and other Bay Area Jewish publications were merged leaving J. as the successor publication. 

The newspaper is sent to nearly 17,000 households every week. 

j. covers the full range of what it means to be Jewish today — from politics to the arts, religion and food, as well as spirituality, life-cycle events and our, local, national and global community. 

j. emphasizes well-written feature stories by our talented staff writers.

We strive to fill j. with the diverse voices — religious and secular — that characterize our vibrant local Jewish community, to engage the reader in the kind of lively debate that enriches and defines Jewish life.

j. was the first weekly Jewish newspaper to place its entire contents on the web starting in 1995. Archives of every issue through today can be found at  http://www.jweekly.com
