Coverage and scope
In addition to other issues, it covers local, national, and world events; Jewish culture and the arts; and Jewish holidays, celebrations, and other topics of interest. It is among the largest Jewish newspapers in the United States, and the largest-circulation weekly newspaper in New Jersey. NJJN publishes five editions, and reaches 58,000 households.
The newspaper was founded in 1946 as The Jewish News. Merging in 1947 with the Jewish Times of Newark, it kept the Jewish News name. In 1988, it was renamed the MetroWest Jewish News. In 1997, it acquired The Jewish Horizon of Union and Somerset counties, changed its name to the New Jersey Jewish News, and focused on Jewish issues in New Jersey. In 1998, the newspaper acquired the Jewish Reporter.
