The American Jewish Press Association was founded in 1944 as a voluntary not-for-profit professional association for the English-language Jewish Press in North America. Today, its membership consists of Jewish media outlets, individual journalists and affiliated organizations throughout the United States and Canada. The AJPA mission has remained constant over the years: to enhance the status of American Jewish journalism and to provide a forum for the exchange of ideas and cooperative activities among the American Jewish press. We welcome your participation.
