Jewish news feeds from Jewish sources

Why is it important to get Jewish news from Jewish sources?

It's a matter of perspective. In addition to whatever other media you get your news about Jewish events from, it's good to add Jewish news media to the mix for balance and for depth that general or secular media can't aim for.

This is especially the case with news from Israel. The Israeli media is quite vigorous - a very free press, indeed! - and by visiting Jewish Feeds, you'll find a variety of sources that cover Israel and the Jewish world in a depth and balance that you won't find elsewhere.

So, make your Jewish Internet experience more Jewish by starting here at Jewish Feeds.

Here are some of the top stories today at Jewish Feeds. For more Jewish and Israeli news and other feeds (that's "web sites that publish Jewish or Israeli XML/RSS feeds"), click the category links at the bottom of the page. And enjoy noshing at Jewish Feeds.
