The Jewish Voice (JV) is a weekly newspaper based in Brooklyn, New York, originally founded 2003 under the name The Sephardic Voice. It is distributed throughout New York City, and to selected locations in New Jersey and Florida. They have the largest Jewish classifieds in the nation,[1] and have an ever-expanding international audience. The Jewish Voice stands out for its unapologetic pro-Zionist editorial outlook, and its dual coverage of both Israeli and local news (the latter focused on New York, and to a lesser extent New Jersey and Florida). On its Facebook page, the Jewish Voice mission statement is "Providing our readers with timely and thought-provoking news and opinion, from a pro-American, pro-Zionist perspective."[1] The newspaper also played an instrumental role in the election of Bob Turner for United States Representative for New York's 9th congressional district.[2] The Jewish Voice is published by David Ben-Hooran.[3] The Jewish Voice caters to traditional Jews, and Brooklyn's Sephardic community in particular, although the paper is not aligned with any specific denomination or movement.
