The Jewish Link of New Jersey (JLNJ) 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. We are today one of the largest weekly papers serving 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 JLNJ-Expanded Edition 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. JLNJ regularly features local schools, shuls, community organizations, and our youth and school sports leagues.
