On March 8, 1962, in its first issue, The Jewish Chronicle promised its readers to “cover the news within its sphere without fear and without favor.”
Much has changed in the last six decades, but the mission of the Chronicle has remained the same: to be a source of unbiased information, connecting its readers through a provocative forum that stimulates and inspires conversation, action and new ideas. The Chronicle continues to be a community newspaper in the truest sense of the phrase.
As we celebrate our first 60 years of award-winning journalism, we invite our readers to take a look back through the decades to see where we’ve been — and to get a sense of where we’re headed.
From our founding — the result of a merger of two predecessor papers — through our more recent digital-first orientation, we hope these feature articles serve to enlighten and inform. For additional coverage, please read our Dec. 30 print edition.
Thank you for making the Chronicle the treasured community institution it is today.
