About Us

Founded in 1977, the Jewish Journal’s mission is to educate, inform and connect Greater Boston’s Jewish and interfaith communities.

Our bimonthly publication is free and mailed to thousands of Jewish and interfaith families in 85 communities in Massachusetts and to 20 other states. Our revenue comes from loyal advertisers, and from volunteer paid subscriptions from donors. The Journal also receives a grant each year from Combined Jewish Philanthropies.

In the Journal, readers will find stories about neighbors, relatives, artists, synagogues, Israel, Torah, and Jewish institutions such as JCCs, day schools, camps and charities. We endeavor to be a one-stop publication of all things Jewish. Pick up the Journal, and if you’re interested, you can find a synagogue for prayer, a rabbi to contact, a Jewish school or camp for your child, a program to attend; an essay that will transport you to another time and place. Maybe after reading a story about Israel, you’ll be moved to make that long-planned visit to Jerusalem or Tel Aviv. Or closer to home, after reading about a neighbor or a friend, you’ll feel the urge to pick up the phone or pay a personal visit.

Above all, our guiding principal in this process is accuracy – the foundation of journalism. As a nonprofit news organization, our culture is defined by transparency, integrity and innovation.
