These sources are generally trustworthy for information but may require further investigation. See all Right-Center sources.

Founded in 1960, The Jewish Press is an American weekly newspaper based in Brooklyn, New York, and geared toward the modern Orthodox Jewish community. The Jewish Press covers the Jewish news from New York City, the United States, and Israel. According to their about page, the newspaper “has championed Torah values and ideals from a centrist or Modern Orthodox perspective.”
Funded by / Ownership
Naomi Klass-Mauer and Hindy Greenwald, daughters of the papers, co-founder Rabbi Sholom Klass, own the Jewish Press. Advertising and print subscriptions derive revenue for the paper.
Analysis / Bias
The Jewish Press publishes both original stories and republished articles from other sources. News is focused on the USA and Israel with an emphasis on the Jewish Community. Articles and headlines are often straightforward and not overly biased such as this Iran Reports Sunday Morning Accident at Natanz Nuclear Site. Stories are sourced properly.
Editorial content is found under the blog section. The Jewish Press leans right with articles such as this 60 Minutes Deceptively Edits Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis To Push Blatant Smear Job, and this Emes Ve-Emunah: Will Identity Politics Destroy Us? A review of op-eds reveals moderate right-leaning bias; however, news reporting is factual.
