The Jewish News Service (JNS) an independent, non-profit wire service covering Jewish news and Israel news throughout the English-speaking world has released a mobile app available in the iOS and Android platforms.

In less than three years, has grown its relationship with U.S. Jewish media by providing content to more than 100 daily, weekly, and monthly publications across the country. Following the launch of its news website,  the  news  app is a new platform for the organization’s reporting on Jewish communities in the United States, around the world, and in Israel.

Although a major goal for has been to protect and even enhance print newspapers’ historic role on the front lines of Jewish media, we are also keenly aware that the habits of the public’s news consumption, especially among younger people, are going more and more digital. Many people are now primarily accessing news via their mobile devices,” said Alina Dain Sharon,  Managing Editor of JNS.

With a clean, streamlined, and easy-to-navigate design, news consumers can use the app to access the latest developments updated in real-time. Users can navigate through the News Briefs section for daily breaking news from Israel and the Jewish world. The features section updates regularly with enterprise reporting and human-interest stories from a Jewish angle. The Opinion section updates with a variety of perspectives on many significant issues, and includes op-eds by JNS’  Shillman Analyst Ben Cohen.

The app’s navigation menu also allows users to access news and analysis in a variety of sub-categories, including Jewish holidays, arts, politics, health, sports, and more.  Additionally, the app is streamlined with  JNS’  growing social media presence via  Twitter and  Facebook.

For those in the Jewish community or those interested in Jewish news, we are excited to offer this new resource.” Sharon said.
