New English-jewish Paper in Cleveland to Replace Existing Weeklies

Download PDF for this date

A group of 30 local men have set up a non-profit corporation, the Cleveland Jewish Publication Co., which plans to issue a weekly paper devoted to news of Jewish interest at home and abroad, it was announced here today. Interim trustees for the group are M. E. Glass, Irving Kane and Lawrence H. Williams.

The new company is to purchase the existing two weeklies — the Jewish Independent and the Jewish Review and Observer — and replace them with one paper. The trustees expect the new publication to be the major means of keeping the local readership posted on Jewish news and developments. The company is now proceeding with further organization, and hopes to publish the first number of the new weekly in the Fall, immediately after the final issues of the present papers.
