The Jewish Star serves diverse Modern Orthodox communities in Metropolitan New York (Long Island, Queens, Riverdale, Westchester, and Manhattan’s Upper West Side and Upper East Side).

The Jewish Star is an independent newspaper produced by Richner Communications, a 100-employee family-owned company that publishes the Pulitzer Prize-winning Riverdale Press and dozens of community newspapers, websites and shopping guides on Long Island. It maintains its own printing operation and is ba leader in digital marketing and in-person events.
The full-time associate editor position (36K-46K) offers Jewish holidays, vacation, health insurance, 401k and more. A P/T hire may be considered.
If you have the journalistic chops, an understanding of what interests Modern Orthodox Jewish communities, and a drive to excel in a professional, collegial environment, latch your career to our rising Star.
