European Jewish Press, Europe's sole Jewish news and information service.
Launched end 2005, the European Jewish Press is the sole online Jewish news agency in Europe.
The privately funded Brussels-based outlet is an independent media body. It aims to provide both Jewish and non-Jewish audiences around the world with balanced, up-to-date and reliable news reports about European Jewry and other issues of concern to the Jewish community.
Thanks to our sponsors, EJP is today the sole pan-European provider of Jewish news and fills an important gap by taking on the role of a centralised European Jewish media agency.
Unlike other Jewish publications in Europe, which maintain a strong focus on the national and local community level, EJP provides a European perspective to news stories and gives readers a chance to learn about Jewish issues across Europe.
EJP strives to disseminate information, news and views about European Jewish issues to a broad global audience, targeting not only Europe’s Jewish communities, but also non-Jewish readers around the world.
Based at the heart of Europe and in a major centre of international media, EJP draws on an extensive network of correspondents throughout Europe from Paris to Kiev and from Stockholm to Rome to supply the latest news.
EJP aims to be the main professional channel of communications providing news on European Jewish life and news impacting Jews.
The agency is today recognised by the major media organisations, EU institutions and the general public as an important source of reliable and accurate information and the undisputed reference on European Jewish issues.
Wide range of topics
EJP provides news stories, features, interviews and pictures on a diverse range of topics including politics, culture, society, lifestyle, business, community issues and sports. In addition, it strives to provide information and present a variety of views on those issues that are of particular concern to the Jewish community today, including anti-Semitism, EU-Israel relations.
EJP’s dedicated “Voices” section forms an opinion forum where all segments of the Jewish community can express their views, concerns and outlook on a range of issues from the threat of revisionism to the meaning of European Jewish identity and Israeli politics.
This section also aims to engage in a dialogue with readers, who can participate in online polls on current issues and voice their opinion.
Besides its wide network of European correspondents, EJP gains its information from a number of varied sources and contacts.
The agency’s editorial office in Brussels, in the heart of the EU area, also play a key role in the gathering and researching of information.
EJP is an associate member of API, the Association of International Press in Brussels. The agency is accredited by the European Union institutions.
