Las Vegas Jewish Paper to Fold

The Jewish Reporter, a 33-year-old Las Vegas-area newspaper, is folding after Rosh Hashanah, the Las Vegas Sun reports today. Like most Jewish newspapers in the United States, the publication—which is free and has a circulation of about 17,000—was funded by its local Jewish Federation and focused on local events. “We had to reevaluate our priorities,” the Federation’s president told the Sun. “Are the dollars that went to publishing the Reporter better used to help people? The answer to that was yes.” He added that a Federation website, jewishlasvegas.com, includes the same kinds of news and announcements that had been provided by the paper. The remaining Jewish publication in the area is the Las Vegas Israelite, which has a paid circulation of 10,000 and, according to its editor, is “the only Jewish newspaper in the country that will tell you who Paris Hilton’s new boyfriend is.”
