About Us

The Detroit Jewish News has been serving Metro Detroit’s Jewish community since 1942 with news and opinion that’s engaging, educational, enjoyable and unique.  We strive to reflect a full range of diverse viewpoints while also advocating positions that strengthen Jewish unity and continuity.

The Detroit Jewish News Foundation is a nonprofit organization that has digitized 100 years of Jewish Detroit history and made it available to the public for free through the William Davidson Digital Archive of Jewish Detroit History.
