THE Australian Jewish News has launched a brand new, cutting-edge website in what is the beginning of a new digital era for the newspaper.
In addition to a fresh new look and easier-to-read format, The AJN has partnered with The Times of Israel and its affiliated publications around the globe to bring you the latest news from the Jewish State, the Middle East and the Diaspora.
The partnership allows us to publish content from a stable of widely read Jewish newspapers, including the UK Jewish News and The Jewish Week in New York.
“It’s exciting to become part of a worldwide network of Jewish newspapers working side by side to deliver news to people across the globe,” said AJN CEO Joshua Levi.
“This enables The AJN to deliver the best news from Israel, Europe and North America, while at the same time giving Jewish people in those countries more access to quality journalism from an Australian Jewish publication.”
Levi added, “The AJN has been published for more than 120 years, and this is another step to ensure its future is secure in an ever-changing publishing landscape.”
David Horovitz, founding editor of The Times of Israel, said he was very pleased to welcome The AJN as the latest Times of Israel-partnered website.
“Cementing a partnership with this venerable publication, so far away from us physically yet so similarly focused on the Jewish people worldwide, underlines how the internet can keep us informed and engaged wherever we are,” he said.
“We now have news outlets on three continents all publishing on the same platform, bringing readers together, keeping them updated about issues that matter, enabling nuanced discussion.”
AJN national editor Zeddy Lawrence added, “With a dedicated digital editor ensuring our website, our app and our social media presence are as current as possible, and with access to articles and columns from some of the biggest names in Jewish journalism around the world, The AJN is looking forward to an exciting new chapter in our delivery of Jewish content across both our online and offline platforms.”
