The Jewish Exponent

"The Jewish Exponent" is a weekly community newspaper serving the Jewish community of Philadelphia. Published continuously since 1887, its circulation was over 55,000 in 2006.

The paper was founded by 43 prominent Philadelphians—among them Henry Samuel Morais—who pledged that it would be "devoted to the interests of the Jewish people." It was an early supporter of Zionism.

In the 1940s the paper experienced financial difficulties, and on May 5, 1944, it was purchased by the Allied Jewish Appeal, a pre-cursor of the Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia, which still publishes it. In 1999 it established a website containing an online version of the newspaper.

The current Executive Editor is Jonathan S. Tobin, who took the position in December 1998. Carin M. Smilk is the Managing Editor.
