Historical Note1

The New England Jewish Free Press (NEJFP) started as a project by students at the Harvard Hillel Graduate Society, and it soon expanded and collaborated with other universities and organizations. Despite its expansion, it remained an independent student facilitated organization.

NEJFP produced two main publications: Jewish Boston: a Guide and New England Jewry. These publications connected Jewish students to their community by listing local activities, synagogues, art galleries, bakeries, and dating services. More than just an entertainment publication, the organization was also concerned with Jewish causes and served as a platform for the unique concerns of the local Jewish students.
