Gary Rosenblatt has been editor and publisher of The Jewish Week of New York, the largest Jewish newspaper in America, since the summer of 1993.  Today, the newspaper has three regional editions serving New York City, Westchester County and Long Island. It reaches more than 55,000 households each week, while our online edition receives about 150,000 visitors monthly.


Prior to that he was editor of the Baltimore Jewish Times for 19 years.  


Rosenblatt has won numerous journalism awards from both the Jewish and secular press for his writing, and was a finalist for a Pulitzer Prize in 1985 –  the first time an article in the Jewish media was cited in the competition. His series of articles in 2000 on a rabbi accused of abusing teenagers for three decades won several national awards and has been cited as a landmark in Jewish investigative reporting.  


Rosenblatt is founder of several Jewish Week projects, including: The Conversation, an annual retreat for American Jewish leaders and emerging leaders; Fresh Ink, a webzine written for and by high school students; The Jewish Week Investigative Journalism Fund; and Write On For Israel, an engagement and educational program  through journalism  for high school students.


In late 2013, Rosenblatt published his first book. Between The Lines is a 278 page collection of some of Gary Rosenblatt’s most thoughtful, award-winning columns from The Jewish Week over the last two decades. They reflect his many interests and areas of expertise, and range from hard-hitting reporting to witty satire, and from thoughts on Jewish power to warm remembrances of his childhood as “the Jewish Rabbi’s son” in Annapolis, Maryland. As editor and publisher, Rosenblatt is often described as “the dean of Jewish journalism.” He writes of his own struggles to be both a loyal member of the community and an independent – and sometimes critical – voice.
