The project encourages other institutions and collections to join in the development of this website.
Developing a Section
The Historical Jewish Press website is divided into different linguistic, cultural, regional, and chronological sections, such as 19th Century Hebrew-language Press and Jewish Press from Arab Countries. It is our intention to develop additional sections: Yiddish Press, Jewish English-language Press, Ladino Press, and much more. We sincerely welcome all parties interested in developing a comprehensive section of this type, an undertaking which is generally most suitable to public or academic institutions and foundations. The partnership will be explicitly noted in the section and in all search results produced therein, as well as on the website's home page and in the list of acknowledgements.
Developing a National Sub-Section
Many sections include within their frameworks Jewish newspapers that were published in a number of different countries. For instance, the section of Jewish Press in Arab Countries, still in its initial stage of development, contains newspapers from both Morocco and Egypt. It is our intention to create sub-sections for each national press included in the larger, more inclusive sections. We sincerely welcome all parties interested in developing such a sub-section, an undertaking which is generally most suitable to community or national organizations and donors with an interest in a particular community. The partnership will be explicitly noted in the sub-section and in all search results produced therein, as well as in the list of acknowledgements.
Uploading a Newspaper to the Website
We sincerely welcome contributions for the purpose of adding a particular newspaper or collection of newspapers to the website. A contribution of this kind is especially suitable for parties with an interest in newspapers, and it can serve as a powerful memorial tribute to special people, events, or causes in the donor's life. Moreover, for those who have not yet chosen a newspaper which they would like to see added to the collection, the Historic Jewish Press website has an extensive list of newspapers, from which it is possible to choose according to personal or institutional preferences: country or city of publication, type of newspaper (daily, children's, political party), frequency of publication (daily, weekly, monthly), and scope of the publication (over-all number of pages). The name of the donor and/or the commemoration will be explicitly noted on the newspaper's webpage and in all search results produced therein.
Contributing Rare Newspapers
We sincerely welcome the contribution of rare newspapers and additional materials relating to the Jewish press or its history throughout the years. Contributions of this type will generally be referred to the National Library, although in special cases they may be directed towards other partners in the project.
We sincerely welcome all other contributions which may assist in the development of this website and in the advancement of its goals.
