Linking Northern and Central NJ, Bronx, Manhattan, Westchester and CT

The Jewish Link launched in March 2013 as a community paper originally focusing on Bergen County. We expanded our coverage to include Union & Essex Counties in 2015 and Passaic and Middlesex Counties in 2016. In 2020 and 2021, we expanded the weekly paper further to include the Bronx, CT, Manhattan, Staten Island, and Westchester.
Today we are one of the largest weekly papers serving the observant Jewish community in the Tri-State area, printing over 20K copies weekly and delivering for free via home delivery to over 10,000 households.
The Jewish Link is focused today on providing premium, hyper-local full-color news coverage, exciting features, Divrei Torah, columns, and opinion pieces, all written by contributors with strong connections to our communities.
The paper is a forum and voice for the unique, dynamic and growing religious communities in our coverage areas. We are committed to highlighting the best of our dynamic and diverse Jewish community without sugarcoating or distorting reality. The Jewish Link regularly features local schools, shuls, community organizations, and our youth and school sports leagues.

The Jewish Link welcomes letters to the editor, which can be emailed to [email protected]. Letters may be edited for length, clarity and appropriateness. We do not welcome personal attacks or disrespectful language, and replies to letters through our website comment feed will not be posted online. Our letters to the editor pages are not designed or intended to be a reflection of opinions held by the editors, but a forum for our readers to express their opinions. We ask that all letters to the editor be signed with the writer’s real name, but we will permit names to be withheld if we can personally confirm the writer’s identity and if printing their name would harm them in some way, including but not limited to parnassa, reputation, etc. Further, we will always endeavor to get the writer to change their letter such that they feel comfortable signing their name, but will allow it to be printed if we, in our editorial discretion, see the danger for harm as listed above. We reserve the right to not print any letter.
The Jewish Link, an independent publication, promotes Judaism and Zionism, and vigorous debate on these topics. The opinions reflected in articles from our contributors do not necessarily reflect JL’s positions. We reserve the right to accept or refuse submissions and edit for content and length. We also reserve the right to refuse advertising that in our opinion does not reflect the standards of the newspaper.
We are not responsible for the kashrus of any product advertised in the Jewish Link. The Jewish Link does not endorse any medical or nutritional claims by writers in our paper. The Jewish Link asks our advertisers to use pictures of women and men in their advertisements when women and men are mentioned.
