J. The Jewish News of Northern California, formerly known as Jweekly,[2][3] is a weekly print newspaper in Northern California, with its online edition updated daily. It is owned and operated by San Francisco Jewish Community Publications Inc.[4] It is based in San Francisco, California.[5]


The origins of J. The Jewish News of Northern California date from December 22, 1895, when the San Francisco newspaper The Emanu-El, began publications,[6][7][8][9] In 1932, a merger occurred with a competing Jewish newspaper, the Jewish Journal. In 1946, following a merger, it changed its name to the Jewish Community Bulletin,[10][11][12] in 1979 it was renamed the San Francisco Jewish Bulletin,[13][14] in 1984 it was renamed the Northern California Jewish Bulletin, in 2003 it was renamed j. the Jewish news weekly of Northern California,[4][15][16] and in 2017 it was renamed J. The Jewish News of Northern California.[2]

Editor and coverage

Sue Fishkoff is its editor, and Steve Gellman is publisher. Marc S. Klein was the editor and publisher emeritus, having retired in September 2011 after nearly 28 years at the helm.[17] Nora Contini retired as associate publisher in the summer of 2013.

The newspaper "covers what it means to be Jewish today -- from politics to the arts, religion and food, as well as spirituality, life-cycle events and our, local, national and global community."[4] Dan Pine is one of the major writers, covering local political issues, campus events and controversies, and other topic.[] Genealogist Nate Bloom is a regular contributor publishing his findings on which celebrities are of full or partial Jewish descent, whether they are practitioners of Judaism, and if they are converts to the faith.[18]
