On Jan. 15, 1948, the very first issue of the Jewish News was published. Almost four months to the day later, the State of Israel was founded. That has always been a source of pride for this newspaper. Obviously, we had nothing to do with the founding of Israel, but it does make us feel special that we share our birth year with the Jewish homeland.

Reading through the early issues of the Jewish News, the paper appeared to concentrated on three topics. The first was chronicling the opening of every new synagogue, organization or committee that served the Valley’s nascent Jewish community. The second concerned appeals to raise funds for the fledgling Jewish state. The third focused on helping Holocaust survivors struggling amid the chaos of post World War II Europe.
