Indiana Jewish Newspapers

Gabriel Murrel Cohen was the founder, editor, and publisher of The Jewish Post & Opinion (1933-present). This unique publication provides historical insight into such events as WWII from an Indiana Jewish perspective. Another example of news unlikely to be covered anywhere else is the founding of the American Jewish Press Association by Cohen in Indianapolis in 1944.

Another Indiana Jewish newspaper to consult in your research is the Indiana Jewish Chronicle. Nathan J. Gould began this periodical in 1921, and it ceased in 1970. The Evergreen Indiana Library Consortium and the Indiana State Library hold microfilm of these issues. Plain text can also be accessed through Evergreen online with your Indiana State Library card number.
