The Jewish Advocate

The Jewish Advocate, founded in 1902, is the oldest continually-circulated English-language Jewish newspaper in the United States. Based in downtown Boston, in the former Boston Post daily newspaper building (which, in its cellars four stories underground, still contains the century-old pulleys-and-lifts system equipment for the publishing presses of those days) overlooking what was known in the late 1800s and early 1900s as “Newspaper Row,” The Jewish Advocate has published weekly every week since its founding over one hundred years ago. The paper is the primary Jewish newspaper for the Greater Boston and Eastern Massachusetts metropolitan area, and for much of New England, with subscribers in all 50 states and 14 foreign countries.

The Jewish Advocate has been the voice of the Jewish community in New England, and readers of all backgrounds and faiths have relied on the paper for more than one hundred years to stay up-to-date and informed about Jewish life in New England and to learn about and debate issues of concern to the Jewish Community in Boston, the US, Israel and around the world.
