The Jewish Standard is a newspaper based in Teaneck, New Jersey, USA, that primarily serves the Jewish community in Bergen County and Northeastern New Jersey.[1][2] The Jewish Standard was founded in 1931, and is the oldest Jewish weekly in New Jersey.[3][4][5]

Unaffiliated with any program, organization, or movement, it states it is dedicated to giving expression to all phases of Jewish life. The Jewish Standard is independently owned, and says it is committed to "Jewish continuity and to Israel and America's well-being that have made both countries blessed."[6]
