The Jewish Ledger is Connecticut's only weekly Jewish newspaper.[2][3]

It was founded in April 1929 by Samuel Neusner (who had come to the United States from Poland at the age of 10, in 1906) and Rabbi Abraham Feldman.[4] Berthold Gaster, whose father had survived the Dachau and Buchenwald concentration camps, became the newspaper's managing editor in 1958.[5] Lee Neusner was it publisher from 1960–66.[5] In 1966, she sold it to Gaster and Shirley Bunis.[5][6] In 1992, the paper was sold to NRG Connecticut Limited Partnership.

The Hartford newspaper also has a monthly edition serving the western Massachusetts area.[7]

As of 2011, the editor was Stacey Dresner.[8] Jonathan S. Tobin, currently of The Jewish Exponent of Philadelphia, is a former editor of the Jewish Ledger.
