A Brief History

The Jewish Exponent has played a vital role in connecting our community since it first rolled off the presses on April 15, 1887.

The second-oldest continuously published Jewish newspaper in the United States, it has evolved from its roots as a voice for prominent businessmen to a multimedia platform for delivering Jewish news and information and stimulating community dialogue.
