History

The paper also includes in-depth coverage of national and international issues of Jewish interest, features and opinion pieces. It is an essential source of information and communication for the local Jewish community, and has received recognition and professional awards for distinguished journalism.

 

The dedicated staff of The Reporter Group not only produces The Reporter, the weekly paper for the local Greater Binghamton community, but also produces a newspaper for the Scranton, PA Jewish community. Each newspaper is tailored to meet that community’s needs. The news staff is assisted by a group of volunteer proofreaders.

 

The Reporter is provided free of charge to individuals and families who are members of the Jewish Federation of Greater Binghamton, and it is available to everyone else for a nominal subscription fee. Voluntary subscriptions from Federation members are appreciated. Anyone who has questions, comments or suggestions, or would like to submit an article to the paper, should visit our contact us page.
