The Associated Press has named The Cleveland Jewish News the best Ohio newspaper for outlets with a daily circulation of 8,000 to 11,999.

In total, The Cleveland Jewish News captured 18 awards, including six first-place awards.

The AP announced the winners on March 23 as the annual May awards ceremony was canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic.

“It is particularly gratifying to see the hard work of our journalists rewarded for their exceptional reporting on important community news stories we told over the past year,” said Kevin S. Adelstein, CEO and publisher of The Cleveland Jewish News and president of the Cleveland Jewish Publication Company. “This is local, community journalism at its core.”

Support Jewish Journalism
with 2020 Vision

One of the most intriguing stories of the sudden Coronavirus crisis is the role of the internet. With individuals forced into home quarantine, most are turning further online for information, education and social interaction.

JNS's influence and readership are growing exponentially, and our positioning sets us apart. Most Jewish media are advocating increasingly biased progressive political and social agendas. JNS is providing more and more readers with a welcome alternative and an ideological home.

During this crisis, JNS continues working overtime. We are being relied upon to tell the story of this crisis as it affects Israel and the global Jewish community, and explain the extraordinary political developments taking place in parallel.

Our ability to thrive in 2020 and beyond depends on the generosity of committed readers and supporters. Monthly donations in particular go a long way in helping us sustain our operations. We greatly appreciate any contributions you can make during these challenging times. We thank you for your ongoing support and wish you blessings for good health and peace of mind.
