The Brown Jewish Journal, new independent journal focused on BrownU’s Jewish community




Coming in a few days will be a new magazine published by students at Brown University – The Brown Jewish Journal.

The first edition will be digital-only, but for future editions they may have both print and online versions. Preliminary information shows they intend to cover opinion, art, culture, research, film, Recipes, and identity.

On their Instagram account they have teased the imminent publication, and they suggest people follow their Instagram account – @brownjewishjournal – that is where updates and the eventual new website will be posted.

Congrats to Andrew, Teddy – and Ariel! And to Orli Hockenstein (publicity director), Ella Goodman (art director), Aaron Perrotta (website director), and Daniel Solomon (treasurer). We look forward to their journey.

Ariel Stein ’24 and two other students are responsible for the new venture. Stein says, “We’re incredibly excited to share this journal not only with Brown, but also with the wider Rhode Island community. It’s been an absolute honor to help create this space for members of Brown’s Jewish community to be in dialogue with one another and share their diverse experiences, perspectives, and traditions.”

In an article in the Brown Daily Herald the publication is described as having “perspectives on Jewish culture, religion, [and] Politics”.

This is a developing story – we will provide a link to the publication when it comes online.
