Las Vegas Jewish paper to cease publication

WASHINGTON (JTA) — The Rosh Hashanah edition will be the last for the Las Vegas Jewish Reporter.

Apparently a casualty of the recession, the 33-year-old paper is shuttering in the wake of low donations, the Las Vegas Sun reported.

“The newspaper has served us well and we’re proud of it, but we’re enthusiastically looking to a new era of communicating and maintaining contact with our community," said Elliot Karp, president and CEO of the United Jewish Community/Jewish Federation of Las Vegas, which published the newspaper.

“We had to re-evaluate our priorities. Are the dollars that went to publishing the Reporter better used to help people? The answer to that was yes.”
