The Jewish Week this week announced that it is becoming a local partner of The Times of Israel, the fastest-growing Jewish news site in the world.
The agreement, scheduled to go into effect this summer, is designed to boost the online presence of The Jewish Week with increased visibility. It will promote the newspaper’s award-winning content for Internet users in the New York area via the homepage and other pages of Times of Israel, known for its state-of-the-art website.
“We are very pleased to partner with Times of Israel, not only for its remarkable international reach, with 3.5 million unique monthly users, but also for its high-quality, thoughtful and thorough editorial content,” said Gary Rosenblatt, editor and publisher of The Jewish Week.
The paper’s associate publisher and chief revenue officer, Richard Waloff, said, “The opportunities in this agreement are significant. It will greatly increase the digital footprint of The Jewish Week in New York State because Jewish Week’s content will appear in all Times of Israel New York State web pages.
“In addition to benefitting our advertisers in terms of added audience,” he said, “the agreement presents us with greater ability to communicate to online readers and e-newsletter subscribers, thanks to enhanced technologies.”
Times of Israel editor David Horovitz described The Jewish Week as an excellent newspaper, “serving the largest local diaspora community, and working with integrity and flair.” He said the partnership would ensure “far more people read The Jewish Week’s reporting online, complementing its award-winning weekly print edition.”
After four years of continued growth, The Times of Israel currently has some 20 million monthly page views; it publishes in French, Arabic, Chinese and Persian as well as English and has more than 150,000 daily email subscribers and over 5,000 bloggers.
