About us

    Founded in 1841, the Jewish Chronicle - often known as the JC – is the world's oldest and most influential Jewish newspaper. With no proprietor nor commercial shareholders, its editorial independence is guaranteed by the Jewish Chronicle Trust. It is based in London, with reporters around the world.

    Our site reflects the values of the JC in digital form, with news and opinion reflecting the wide diversity of Jewish religious, social and political thought from left to right, Orthodox to secular. News coverage ranges from investigations to reports of communal activities, with context provided by leading commentators and cultural figures. Our features and lifestyle cover everything from arts and food to fashion and travel. And our comprehensive sport section has both national and international Jewish sport.
