Canadian Jewish News

The "Canadian Jewish News" (CJN) is a weekly, English-language tabloid-sized newspaper serving Canada's Jewish community. Though independent, the newspaper has been, since 1971, owned by a group of Jewish leaders involved with Canadian Jewish Congress and is generally seen as reflecting the CJC's views. Editorially, the newspaper is pro-Zionist but is otherwise non-partisan in regards to Israeli or Canadian political parties and is more moderate than B'nai Brith Canada's newspaper, "The Jewish Tribune", which tends to be pro-Likud and right of centre. The CJN has a circulation of 50,000 making it the most widely read Jewish newspaper in the country. It is published in Montreal and Toronto and sold in Jewish communities across Canada.

Notable contributors to the newspaper have included J.B. Salsberg, who was a featured columnist in the newspaper for several decades until shortly before his death in 1998, and Rabbi Gunther Plaut who also contributed a weekly column for many years. The "Canadian Jewish News" was founded by Herut supporter M. J. Nurenberger and his wife Dorothy and was first published on Friday, January 1, 1960. In 1971, following the death of his wife, Nurenberger sold the newspaper to the present owners but soon regretted his decision and started the "Jewish Times" in 1974 which was decidedly more right wing than CJN under its new management.
