With this week’s edition of the Jewish Link, we take a step forward in our short history by growing our paper to meet the needs of our growing community. The Jewish Link of Bergen County, established in March 2013, has been welcomed into religious homes in Bergen County as special addition to their families’ reading material. Our “Shabbos paper,” is also published online at http://www/jewishlinknj.com. Both our digital and “dead-tree artifact” editions are so well received in Bergen County, that families’ from other communities have asked to come on board. They too, want to share information, a place where they can be proud of their children, their chesed ops, schools, and community.
That is why this Shabbos Chanukah, a time when everyone celebrating, the Jewish Link is celebrating the expansion of its coverage into Essex and Union counties, to the observant communities of West Orange, Livingston, Elizabeth/Hillside, Springfield, Linden and surrounding communities. Our goal is to link the Jewish communities in Bergen, Essex and Union by sharing international and hyperlocal news, interesting articles on everything from divrei Torah to outer space, and profiles of people among us who have led interesting and inspiring lives. We are believers in food for thought, in inspiring our readers, and helping them be proactive in whatever way they choose.
We strongly believe that the communities we serve and will serve are tied together in myriad ways, via our schools, friends, and families’. The JLNJ mission is to extend and strengthen those connections by telling your stories, sharing your experiences, and offering a forum for debate on a host of issues. We hope to hear from you, too.
In addition to continued delivery in Bergen County, JLNJ will be delivered weekly to many establishments in Essex and Union counties–supermarkets, kosher eateries, shuls, schools and more. You will find a full list of locations below.
We look forward to sharing news of our community together. It is our hope that, together, we will go from strength to strength. We welcome your questions, comments, suggestions and submissions!
